Fried Eggplants with Yogurt Sauce

(Yogurtlu Patlican Kizartmasi)

Fried Eggplants with Yogurt Sauce
2 Japanese eggplants
1/2 cup sunflower oil

Garlic-Yogurt Sauce:
1/2 cup yogurt
1-2 cloves garlic, smashed with salt

Peel the eggplant in lengthwise strips. Cut in 1 1/2 in (2 cm) high round shape. Soak in 2 cups of water with salt for about 30 minutes. Squeeze and dry them with paper towel.

Fried the both sides of eggplant slices in sunflower oil over a little bit under high heat. Afterwards, place on a paper towel to soak up any extra oil.

Let it cool down first. Then place on service plate. Serve it with garlic yogurt sauce. This very easy and delicious recipe is a great appetizer for the summer time:)

Hi Binnur,

What is the difference between regular eggplants and Japanese eggplants? In Turkey, my mother buys the slim and long eggplants.

Thank you,
