  • Summary

    Eggplant is like a sponge. Salting it draws out moisture and firms up the flesh, and deep-frying ensures it cooks evenly until creamy throughout. Worth your time.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves with tender stems
    • 1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves with tender stems
    • 1 garlic clove, chopped
    • 2 small green chiles, such as Thai, seeds removed, chopped, divided
    • 1/2 cup olive oil, divided
    • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more
    • 3/4 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 2 medium eggplants (about 1 1/2 pounds), cut into 1 1/2" pieces
    • Vegetable oil (for frying; about 2 cups)
    • 1 pound small tomatoes (about 8), cut into wedges
    • 1/2 pound Persian cucumbers (about 3), sliced
    • A deep-fry thermometer
