  • Remove the potatoes and strain well, leave to cool slightly.

Preparation of minced meat filling:

  • Fry the chopped onion in oil for 2 minutes, add the finely chopped carrots, and the minced meat.

  • Leave to simmer until the water evaporates from the meat (10 minutes), cover and occasionally stir over a moderately high heat.

  • Then add chopped chili pepper (optional), tomato chopped into pieces, dried primrose, minced red pepper, stir, and simmer for 10 minutes.

  • Add salt, pepper, dry spice to taste at the end.

  3. first layer of potatoes,

  4. second layer of eggplant, and finely chopped 1 clove garlic
