FAQs about Thai eggplant
Many supermarkets in the U.S. don't carry Thai eggplant since it's not a very well-known variety or common to use in cooking unless you're making Thai dishes. You are more likely to find them in Asian markets and grocery stores, or specialty stores.
Peel the stem away from the top of the Thai eggplant and slice off the top. You can then cut the eggplant in half, in quarters, or in pieces or leave it as is. Once the eggplant is cut open, it's best to consume it right away as it discolors quickly. There's no need to remove the skin since it is soft once it's cooked. Thai eggplants can also be enjoyed raw and with the skin. They are much easier to prepare since you don't have to remove the bitterness through salting as is commonly done with purple eggplants.
This eggplant doesn't ask for much to be enjoyed. Unlike other popular eggplants, it can be eaten raw and it doesn't have a bitter or unpleasant taste. It has a neutral flavor that can be eaten with dips or sauces of your choice.
