Expert Tips
  • Before starting the recipe, soak the eggplants in salted water and then rinse them. This way, you can remove the bitterness.
  • To soften the consistency, you can crush the tomatoes and use the juice.
  • Be sure to use the crushed garlic pulp. Thus, you can get a more aromatic taste.
  • Prepare the baba ganoush just before you start the meal. Otherwise, the tomatoes and yogurt will release themselves and cause the appetizer to get mushy.
