Spice up the rice: in a bowl, add washed rice, butter and spices. Mix them well.
Prepare your baking dish: line the bottom and the sides of your baking dish with parchment paper.
Add tomato and meat: add tomato slices to the bottom of the pan then top that with the browned ground meat.
Arrange eggplant: arrange eggplant slices so they are overlapping and hanging on the sides of the dish. Make sure to cover the bottom well.
Adding rice: add the rice mixture, pour boiling cooking liquid ( water or broth), then flip the hanging eggplant slices over to close.
Bake: bake the rice dish in a 400F preheated oven until rice is totally cooked.
Cool and flip: let it cool down for 15 minutes then flip it over your serving dish. Garnish with toasted nuts and parsley.
