Traditionally this Iraqi-Israeli sandwich has boiled egg, pickled mango and hot pickle relish on it. Without egg makes it vegan, the pickle spices aren’t necessary as this sandwich is delicious as is, feel free to add those ingredients if u like.
The eggplant can be served hot or cold on the sandwich. We usually make a big batch and refrigerate the left overs, so we can make this sandwich very easily without having to cook.
Another ingredient we love to put on this sandwich is baked fries. We cook the potatoes the same way as the eggplant.
