3- Carefully peel the eggplants, then using a knife, cut them into small pieces and mash them until the texture is smooth.
4- In a pan over medium heat, heat the olive oil, add the mashed eggplants, and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

7- In a large pan over medium heat, drizzle a little bit of olive oil and place the Mutabbaks. Cook from both sides for 5 minutes or until golden brown.
