  2. After you cut the slices, add salt to the eggplant and keep for around 30 mins. This will allow the salt to get absorbed and pull out excess water from the eggplant giving it a very nice golden grill marks when you grill the eggplant.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan and grill all the eggplant till cooked on both sides. This will take about 3 minutes on
    each side.

  2. Add tomato puree and top with the chicken mince mixture. Sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese and repeat procedure of
  3. layering the eggplant, tomato sauce and cheese.
  4. Cover with another layer of eggplant.


  1. Make a crumble with parmesan cheese, oregano leaves and breadcrumbs. Add olive oil and mix well.
  2. Top this mixture on top of the eggplant layer. Once the pie is baked, this will give it a nice crunch to the dish.


  1. Once the above procedure is done, cover it with a aluminium foil and bake in oven at 190 degree Celsius for 20 minutes in a pre-heated oven. After 20 minutes remove the aluminium foil and bake it for a further 10 minutes or till the crust forms a nice golden brown color.
