Eggplant Rolls

I don’t have much to say about this recipe, it mostly says for itself: eggplants and tomatoes – main ingredients – are good combination and garlic doesn’t make it any worse.

This recipe isn’t much hassle to prepare and ingredients don’t cost much; so you can easy get to advised 5 servings of vegetables per day and even enjoy it.

Eggplant rolls taste better while fresh, so prepare them right before serving.

I make this all the time,my friend from Kyrgyzstan taught me the recipe. I dip the eggplants in beaten eggs and then fry them. It’s always a hit when I bring it to parties. Very Yummy!!! One of my favorites!!

I believe sourcream will work better than mayonnaise here, but its my humble opinion. A+++ recipe for summer, I love it!
