Tips & variations

  • Eggplant tends to be bitter, but this can be easily avoided by following our tips. Slice the eggplant however you like. Season generously with salt and stir. Leave in this state for at least 25 minutes. Rinse under running water to remove any juices and excess salt. Cook as directed by the recipe.

  • Remember that when frying or stewing, eggplants greatly decrease in size, because they contain a lot of water. Medium-sized fruits have the best taste. They have a lot of pulp, and the skin is soft. By the way, cutting the skin of eggplant is not necessary at all. It is not harmful, in the process of cooking it becomes soft and gives the dish a characteristic purple color.

    I haven’t tried this eggplant recipe yet. Although it looks very appetizing. Tell me, are they not too spicy? Can children eat this? The recipe contains garlic and hot peppers. Or you can not add these gradients?

    The dish will be richer if it is cooked at once with meat, as a traditional Georgian dish. As a result of the long simmering the dish turns out amazingly juicy, delicious and fragrant! Undoubtedly, you will have to work a little bit on cooking, but the result is sure to please. The aromas of Georgia will appetizingly fill the whole house, not just the kitchen. And, it will be a wonderful option for the festive table.
