How to stop sliced brinjals from turning black
Brinjals turn blackish, the moment you slice them; this is due to the natural process of oxidisation. Here’s how you can retain the original colour for your brinjal dish.
Always wash brinjals before slicing.
Add a tbsp. of milk to a bowl of water.
Add brinjal slices to the milk bowl, immediately after cutting.
Make sure the brinjal is completely submerged. Milk will help prevent the oxidisation process.
When ready to cook, take out the brinjal pieces, flatten them between your palms to get rid of excess moisture, and cook with them immediately.
