  • The potato and eggplant should first be cut into homogeneous, medium-sized cubes. How does that assist? Vegetables cook more quickly and uniformly. 
  • As soon as the potatoes and eggplant are cut, immerse them in water until you are ready to use them. The simple explanation for this is to avoid oxidation.
  • Apple slices exposed to the weather and left uncovered have definitely caught your attention. Similar processes do place in some vegetables. Eggplants don’t become dark if they are soaked in water, especially salted water.
  • The final and most crucial piece of advice is to cook the potatoes first and then add the eggplant. On the cooktop, the root vegetable needs more time to cook.
  •  When you put both in the pan at once, you run the risk of getting a dish that is either overcooked or unevenly cooked.
