Mirza Ghassemi (Persian: میرزاقاسمی, Mirzā-Ghāsemi) is a Northern Iranian (originally from Gilan province) appetizer or main based on tandoori or grilled aubergine (eggplant), distinct to the Caspian Sea region.[1]

The spelling of the name of this dish varies in English and can include; Mirza Ghasemi, Mirza Qasemi.

The dish consists of aubergines seasoned with garlic, tomato, turmeric, oil or butter, salt and pepper bound together with eggs.[2] It can be prepared as a casserole dish,[2] and is usually served with bread or rice. The variant made with zucchini instead of aubergine is called Kadoo Ghassemi.
