  2. Dry with a napkin or a kitchen towel, cut it with a sharp knife into circles, 1 cm thick.
  3. Sprinkle generously with salt and let the billet stand for a while.
  4. After 30 minutes, wash the pieces, put them on a thick cloth so that excess fluid is absorbed.
  5. In a large pan, boil water, put the eggplant in a colander in small portions.
  6. We lower the container with circles for several minutes in boiling water and immediately transfer it to a bowl with ice. Or we keep a colander under a stream of cold water.
