Can you eat eggplant raw?
The answer to this question is yes! While the leaves and flowers can be poisonous, the eggplant itself can be eaten both raw and cooked. Eaten raw, however, this vegetable has a slightly bitter and unpleasant taste and a spongy texture. After cooking, however, the taste becomes milder and a little richer. It also gets a soft, creamy texture, so it’s far better to bake or fry it first.
Eggplant prefers to be fully cooked through, until it’s melt-in-the-mouth, smooth, and creamy

Is an air fryer better than a regular one?
An air fryer doesn’t actually fry – that’s because it cooks food by convection baking. During actual frying, the food is dipped directly into hot oil. The oil completely surrounds every inch of the food, giving it an even crisp. But that is very unhealthy.
In most cases air frying is much healthier than frying in oil. It reduces calories by 70% to 80% and has a lot less fat. This cooking method could also reduce some of the other harmful effects of frying in oil. So we can boldly say that an air fryer is way better than a regular one!
This recipe will only take you 30-40 minutes!
