Rolled Eggplants Recipe

Rolled Eggplants.For the entire month of December I’m planning to share dishes and desserts mostly from Armenian cuisine and the ones we usually make for our New Year festivities. I doubt I’ll manage to film and share all of them, as the list is quite long, but I’ll try post my most favorites for sure.

This Rolled Eggplants appetizer is certainly the one you would want to try. Incredibly delicious and very simple to make.

  1. Thank you for posting the recipe, I make this without sour cream, with lebni, and will try adding sour cream next time. One comment that I would like to make is you should really consider tying your hair when cooking, and also avoid touching it so much. Just something that I noticed, not trying to be mean ?

    • Marine jan,I don’t think I touch my hair too much ,normally I keep it tied in a bun.
      I’m not a restaurant chef,cooking for customers,
      It’s my home kitchen and if I even touch my clean hair once or twice ,nothing terrible or unsanitary will happen. I won’t say your comment is mean but it’s Unnecessary
      Thank you!

  2. I just made this yesterday and added a bit fresh spinach into filling. Great recipe, thank you for Inspirational Armenian food videos.
