[NO BREAD for Keto or low carb diet] Mirza Ghasemi is typical north Iran dish with eggplants, tomato and lots of garlic! It’s delicious with Barbari bread or Persian rice or even alone!

2- Put them in the oven for 40-50 mins on 200C°/390F°
3- After oven place them on a hot grill and let their skin slightly burn this helps to gain a smoky taste
4- Peel their skin off when they cool down
5- Put them in a bowl and mash them
6- Put the tomatoes in boiling water and let them stay for only 1 minute
7- Peel the skin off
8- Cut them in pieces, not so small!
9- Grate 2 garlics in a pan then add ghee, salt, black pepper and turmeric stir fry them gently for 1 min on medium heat
10- Add the tomatoes (and yes i changed the spoon with a bigger one!) turn up the heat
11- Cook the tomatoes until they softens and lose water, see when you make a way with the spoon it’s not runny
12- Time to add the Eggplants and mix them with the rest of the ingredients
13- Continue to stir fry them till the eggplants softens. It might take 15-20 mins.
14- When they are cooked well add some generous amount of oil or ghee. Mix them well now it’s so shiny!
15- Make some wholes with the spoon and add 3 eggs But don’t stir them!
16- Even make some more space with spoon so the egg whites have more space to spread while they are cooking (don’t stir them yet) (no stirring!)
17- When the eggs are half cooked gently sitr them up with other ingredients. The bites of eggs should be visible like the eggplants and tomatoes
