About Indian eggplant

As you can guess by its name, Indian eggplant is native to India. Indian eggplant is a variant of eggplant that comes in a small, ovular shape. The egg-shaped food is technically a fruit, but it is cooked like a vegetable. It is a member of the solanum family, or the nightshade family alongside potatoes, peppers, and so on, and its scientific name is solanum Melogena Esculenta. You may have also heard Indian eggplant referred to by the name baby eggplant.

Indian eggplant is similar in color to American/Italian eggplant, but it's much smaller and has thicker skin. The purple food is also stronger in flavor and sweeter than its American/Italian cousin, and it's known for its white, firm, crisp, and creamy interior. Indian eggplant has a few seeds, which are edible and comfortable to eat. The skin of Indian eggplant is also edible, but most people prefer to cook Indian eggplant instead of eating it raw.

There are several health benefits of Indian eggplant. For one, this food is an excellent source of fiber, which can assist with digestive health. Indian eggplant also contains vitamin B6, vitamin K, and potassium. If you're interested in incorporating antioxidant properties into your diet, pick Indian eggplant for its anthocyanin contents.
