Preparation steps

1.

Rinse eggplants and slice, lengthwise, about 0.5 cm (approximately 1/5 inch) thick. Soak in salted water for about 10 minutes.

2.

Preheat the oven's brioler. 

3.

Soak bread in lukewarm water. Peel and mince garlic. Rinse Hungarian peppers and chile peppers. Cut in half, remove seeds and ribs and dice. Reserve 1-2 tablespoons of diced peppers for garnish.

Put meat in a bowl. Squeeze out bun and add to meat with peppers, garlic, mint and egg. Season with salt and pepper. Knead together and add crumbs as needed. Form small meatballs and cook in hot oil for 6-8 minutes.

4.

Pat eggplant dry and sprinkle each slice with a little oil, salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cook under the broiler until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Flip once.

5.

Arrange eggplant on plates and add meatballs. Garnish with diced vegetables and fresh mint and serve.
