small handful of parsley, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon ground mix spices

- Heat oil in a pan, fry eggplants until golden brown, lift on kitchen paper to get rid of excess oil.
- Drain rice and place in in a large bowl, season with salt and spices.
- Coat the bottom of a round pot with oil.
- Arrange eggplant rounds on the bottom of the pot then a layer of rice, then the meat (you can repeat this step to apply many layers).
- Press slightly, prick in several places with a wooden skewer. And pour stock.
- Cover the pot with aluminum foil and place in oven for about 20 minutes or until done.
- Remove pot from heat and let cool for about 10 minutes.
