Msa’a- Eggplant casserole

_DSC0901

This dish is not to be confused with the Greek dish, Musaka, it has some similarities but is quite different. An Egyptian friend first introduced this to me and I loved it. She then taught me how to make it and it has been a favorite for our family ever since. I have changed some things in order to make it easier for us to eat but it is basically the same. I deep fry the eggplant or saute it, so you can do either.

Ingredients

2 Eggplants

1 Green bell pepper sliced

1 Red bell pepper sliced

1 onion chopped

5 garlic chopped

1 pound ground beef

1 tsp. salt- for ground beef, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. cumin, 1/2 tsp. allspice

Vegetable oil for frying

Sauce

1 can tomato paste

4 garlic cloves
