Steps

1
Done

Cut the eggplants in large and transversal chunks. In a big bowl put the eggplants and sprinkle a good handful of salt to let them lose the bitterness. Leave them for about 10 mins.

2
Done

Then rinse with some water and dab with some kitchen paper.

3
Done

In a glass put 3 or 4 tablespoons of vinegar and 2 tablespoons of sugar and stir it until the sugar dissolve. The quantity of vinegar may vary, it depends on its intensity.
Taste it and decide. Put it aside for a moment.

You may use a fry pan or the oven. In the frying pan, medium heat, stir it and toast them a bit. Then, when they cool down, crush them roughly with a mortar or blender. Put them aside for a moment.

Fry the eggplants in a pan with some corn oil at medium heat. Then put them in a colander to let the oil drain. Put them aside for a moment.

6
Done

In the same frying pan, take away the seed oil and put a bit of tomato puree just to give it some colour and let it cook for 1 or 2 minutes.

7

Pour your mix of vinegar and sugar (sweet and sour) and higher the heat a bit to let the alcohol evaporate (about 1 minute).

Then lower the heat and put the fried eggplants and let them cook for 1 or 2 minutes more.

Put your eggplants in a platter and when they are cooled down, sprinkle the chopped toasted almonds. Put in the refrigerator for 1 hour before serving.
