A bad translation of this kebab's name would be "Ali-polite," so don't be surprised if you find this dish with a weird name on an English menu in a Turkish restaurant. Considering its Ottoman origins, the name actually comes from "ala nazik" which would translate to "delightful dish." As the humble name suggests, this dish is ever so satisfying yet oh so simple. The kebab is a specialty of the southeastern Gaziantep province. Depending on where you eat this, the meat on top will be different – both in size and type of meat – but will usually be lamb chopped up in small pieces. In this version of the dish, I chose to use minced beef to make it more accessible to all. But don't hesitate to try out different versions!
300 grams minced beef
4 roasted eggplants
