How to cook

Finely chop the onion, pepper and carrot. Fry them with oil and with the minced meat in a pan. Stir at all times until the minced meat cumbles well. Season with paprika, black pepper and salt.

Cut the peeled potatoes into cubes and place them in a medium-sized baking pan. Pour the minced meat. Mix well and pour enough hot water to cover the potatoes.

Cook it in a heated oven at 390°F (200°C) until the potatoes soften (about 30 min). Add the tomatoes and chopped parsley. Cook for another 10 minutes.

Make the filling by beating the eggs well with the yogurt and flour. Add a pinch of salt and pour it over the moussaka evenly.

Bake it in the middle and very top of the oven only until the moussaka topping is baked (10-15 min).

Serve it with a spoonful or two of yogurt.
