Hünkârbeğendi, or simply beğendi (the name means that the sovereign/sultan liked it), is an Ottoman cuisine dish. It is made from smoked and spiced eggplant, which is grilled, then pureed, and stirred with milk, melted butter and roasted flour. Finally, the mixture is topped with cubes of sauteed lamb.[1]
