Roasted Eggplant (Közlenmiş Patlıcan)

Roasted eggplant is a popular appetizer among many people. This dish is often served as a side dish or starter. Vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers play supporting roles. Eggplants get cooked in olive oil and garlic before being sprinkled with salt and pepper. Some other seasonings may be added if desired. Before serving, lemon juice is usually added to give the dish a nice taste.

Eggplants are delicious when roasted. They take longer than most other vegetables to cook because they require more heat. This means that you should be patient and do not rush the process. You also need to know how much heat to use depending on the size of your eggplant.

Easy roasted eggplant is a popular dish in Turkey. It is made by boiling eggplants until soft and then roasting them slowly over an open fire. This method helps soften the skin of the eggplants while retaining their natural flavor. As a result, this dish is very tender. In addition, the skin of the eggplant is removed before cooking so you get a smooth and creamy texture without any bitterness or roughness.
