Imam Bayildi

£6.90

Aubergine stuffed with fresh tomatoes, onions, green peppers, parsley and a hint of garlic The dish literally means “the imam fainted”. In Turkish when you like something very much you say “I faint for it”. The name supposedly derives from a tale of a Turkish imam, who swooned with pleasure at the flavour when presented with this dish by his wife. It is one of the most notable ‘zeytinyağlı’ (olive oil-based) of Istanbul.
