Cooking eggplant fried "mushroom":

Step 1: Prepare the ingredients.

The main thing when buying to eggplant were not wrinkled or beatenso that the peel is solid and even. Fresh eggplant must be thoroughly washed in cold water, trimmed with tails and dried on a kitchen towel. We need them medium sized, then the pulp is softer and more tender, which is just suitable for our dish, because we must achieve the effect of replacing mushrooms. Cut eggplant medium sized cubes, do not peel the peel and put it in a separate bowl. Cubes must be sized 0.5-1 centimeterso as not to fry and remain nutritious and satisfying. You need to add a little salt to leave the bitterness. Across 10-15 minutes rinse them with running water. We beat the eggs into the bowl, mix thoroughly. Then add to the eggplant, mix again, so that each piece is smeared from all sides. Set aside. Next, peel the onions from the husks and rinse under running water. Onions can be used even less, who do not want too much of it in the dish. Peel the garlic and rinse. We do the same with parsley and dill.

Step 2: Fry the eggplant "mushroom".

We chop the well-washed onion into small cubes and send on a preheated frying pan. In vegetable oil, our onion should turn out to be golden in color and a little transparent. After that, put the pieces of eggplant in the pan. We mix everything constantly, the main thing is do not let burn. When the pieces are lightly browned, pour the mayonnaise or sour cream. Next, add the mushroom cube or dried shredded mushrooms. If you put a cube, then you can not salt it, since it already contains a portion of salt, if just the mushrooms are ground, then you need to salt to taste. Spread garlic and herbs, pepper a little. Cover and simmer for up to five minutes.
