  13. Interesting Chitra that you soak the eggplant in salted water – I normally slice and just salt and then leave it for a while – does soaking make a difference?

    • Hi Laura, I also used to do the same earlier just scrub some salt and leave it on the counter for sometime but I read somewhere that eggplant has lots of non-salty water in it , so before frying if it’s soaked in salty water, all the water in the eggplant hook up with salt on the outside so water gets drawn out, making the eggplant perfect for frying So just tried this metod … but scrubbing salt is what most of them do and you can still follow that… thanx for your interest Laura… hope I havnt confused you with my answer…… Thank you…
