Spicy eggplant appetizer. Step by step recipe
- For a savory snack, wash my eggplants and peel them.
- From the peeled eggplant we cut off the ends, and we cut the eggplant along and cut into slices (about 1 centimeter thick).
- Sliced eggplant in a deep bowl.
- Sprinkle the eggplants in a bowl generously with salt, mix thoroughly and leave to stand for 30 minutes.
- After this time, fry the eggplants (for this you can use a regular frying pan or grill pan).
- Pour a little vegetable oil into the pan, lay out the eggplant and fry on a sufficiently high fire, then turn it over and fry them on the other side.
- We put the fried eggplant in a deep container (I use a deep salad bowl).
- Grind walnuts for eggplant snacks (I put the nuts in a bag, put the bag of nuts on the table, cover with a towel and chop them with a rolling pin).
- Shredded nuts are sent to the eggplant container.
- Peel medium-sized carrots, wash and grate Korean carrots. Grated carrots are sent to eggplant and nuts.
- We cut the two middle onions into rings. Onion rings are also sent to a container for carrots and eggplant.
- Finely chop one small head of garlic (these are six cloves) and add to the salad bowl to vegetables.
- All the contents of the salad bowl are mixed well with a spoon.
- To prepare the marinade for homemade eggplant appetizers in a separate container we combine sugar, vinegar, salt, vegetable oil and mix everything thoroughly. Marinade for eggplant is ready.
- Pour eggplant with onions, carrots and nuts into the prepared marinade, add a little fresh ground pepper.
- And now we mix everything well so that all the ingredients are well saturated with the marinade.
- We tighten the bowl with the spicy eggplant with cling film.
- We put the appetizer in the refrigerator, and leave it to marinate for one day.
- After this time, the spicy eggplant appetizer is ready to eat.
