How to prepare the aubergine and potato recipe

  1. First wash the aubergines and cut the pulp into one centimeter cubes , sprinkle them with a little salt and let them rest for at least 1 hour so that they eliminate their vegetation water (this step can easily be omitted).
  2. Then peel the potatoes and cut them into pieces of the same size.
  3. If you have drained the aubergines, drain them and rinse them quickly before cooking.
  4. In a non-stick pan, heat the oil with the garlic clove, chopped onion and chilli pepper. Add the aubergines and sauté them over high heat until they are cooked to perfection, with a nice crust (it will take about 10 minutes ), then set them aside.
  5. Boil the potatoes in the pan until they are tender, then drain them and throw them in the pan with the aubergines. In this case the boiling time will depend on the size of the potato chunks.
  6. Cook everything over a high heat for a few minutes, until a nice crust is created in the potatoes too, then remove the garlic, season with salt and the chosen spices or aromatic herbs.

To have crispy pan-fried potatoes and aubergines, it is very important that when you add the potatoes, the aubergines are already well toasted .
