How to prepare

This recipe makes 4 servings
Place the meatball ingredients in a bowl and mix together by hand.
Form fist-sized balls, place on a skewer and with wet hands gently squeeze shaping it into a long thin rectangle.
Pre-heat a barbecue or the oven grill.
Lay the skewers on the rack with the aubergines, peppers, tomato halves (seed side up) and garlic cloves.
During cooking turn the skewers so that the meat is evenly cooked.
Use a fork to mash together the roasted aubergine, tomato, peppers, garlic, salt and pepper.
Place the mixture in an oven proof dish and heat in the oven for 2-3 minutes.
Place mixture onto a serving plate, add the meat and spoon yogurt all around it.
Serve immediately with pita bread
Roasted Aubergine:
Before roasting prick holes in the aubergine using a fork, this will help it to soften and cook better.
Pre-heat the grill, place the aubergines on an oven tray and grill 35 minutes.
They can also be barbecued until soft.
Peel them and remove any hard pulp or seeds.
Place them in 480ml of water with juice of ½ a lemon for 5 minutes to stop them discolouring
Drain and use a knife to cut them into small pieces
Roasted Green and Red Peppers:
Pre-heat the grill in the oven.
Remove the tops of the peppers and cut in half.
Place the peppers on an oven tray skin side up and grill them for 15 minutes.
They can also be barbecued skin side down until soft.
The Turkish name for this dish is Abu Ganus Soslu Kebap
