Stuffed Bulgur and Brinjal Bake is a really off-beat and totally exotic dish that is sure to be enjoyed by everybody! Bulgur wheat is cooked with delicious veggies, tangy tomato sauce, aromatic herbs and spices, and stuffed into large brinjals.


This mouth-watering arrangement is then baked with a topping of grated cheese, to make a totally outta-this-world dish, which will excite your taste buds and ensure that you remember it for a long time!

Served with Cheese and Herb Potato Fries and a bowl of hot soup makes for a satisfying meal.
