Soak Eggplants in Salt Water for Fifteen Minutes to Remove Bitterness

10.11.2015

Eggplant is a popular cooking ingredient in many countries. It can be boiled, fried, baked, stewed, grilled, or used for making eggplant salads or paste.

It is not recommended to eat overripe eggplants, as they contain much solanine. Young fruit in a phase of technical maturity is the best for cooking. You should not eat raw eggplants as well.

Usually, all the recipes require soaking eggplants in salt water before cooking to remove their bitterness. However, most eggplants today contain no bitter juices. However, there is another reason for soaking – eggplants absorb much oil when fried, but salt prevents this process. Another way to prevent eggplants from absorbing much oil is to boil sliced eggplants before cooking.
