1.1 lbs (2 medium)
4 cloves (0.9 oz)
Chili Pepper
0.5 oz (to taste)
Soy Sauce
3 tbsp
Sesame Oil

First, we wash and remove the stems from the eggplants. Then we cut them into 4 parts.
Pour enough water into a saucepan and bring to a boil. When the water boils, add the eggplants. Boil for 5-6 minutes from the moment of boiling. It is important not to overcook the eggplants.
Meanwhile, let's make the dressing. Lightly toast the sesame seeds in a skillet. Finely chop the garlic, onion, chili pepper, and cilantro. In a convenient container, mix all the dressing ingredients.
Drain the cooked eggplants in a colander and immediately cut them into thin slices.
Mix the still warm eggplants with the prepared dressing. Mix gently to avoid damaging the integrity of the eggplants. You can serve this appetizer or salad warm, but it's also good cold. Enjoy your meal!
