Preparations

  1. Step 1

    * If using tougher/thicker meat, I recommend a pressure cooker. A regular pot will be fine for thinly sliced or tender meat. 

In your pot, add thinly slice onion and make a batch of piaz dagh (Iranian fried onions). Remove half for later. See recipe here: http://cookmap.com/en/recipes/how-to-make-piaz-dagh-iranian-fried-onions)

    Add a good amount of oil to a frying pan, and pan fry the eggplants until evenly golden on both sides. Using plenty of oil helps prevent the eggplant from burning so  don't be too stingy ;)
