Tepsi baytinijan (Arabic: التبسي‎) is a popular Iraqi casserole dish[1] consisting of aubergine, which are sliced and fried before placing in a baking dish, accompanied with meatballs, tomatoes, onions and garlic. Potato slices are placed on top of the mixture, and the dish is baked.[2]

The name of the dish comes from Turkish "tepsi patlican" 'eggplant in a baking dish'.

Like many other Iraqi dishes, it is usually served with rice, along with salad and pickles.
