This was another dish that I got to make with mom while visiting her in Chicago earlier this year. Mella Ghormeh is a simple northern Iranian / Caspian sea dish which is incredibly simple to make. A tasty dish that starts with sauteing onions, garlic, and eggplants followed by adding dried herbs, tomatoes and water. The eggplants are cooked until they become tender, eggs are then cracked on top and poached in the broth for about 5 minutes. As with most Caspian Sea dishes, it is served with rice and yogurt on the side.
Nooshe-jan! (Bon appetit!)
