Weighing roughly an ounce, Thai eggplants are known as perhaps the smallest cultivated varieties in the marketplace. They are readily distinguished by their golf ball size and shape as well as by the green, light green and white color variegations that begin at the base and fade to green at the fruit's stem. Their flavor is mild and their seedy flesh is white and pink resembling the appearance of a fig, with a firm texture.
Commonly use : At the most traditional and basic level, Thai eggplants are most commonly used in curries because when cooked they become soft and soak up the sauce with ease. Regardless of size and tradition, Thai eggplant can be as versatile as larger eggplant varieties. Applications range from grilling, shallow and deep frying, baking, pureeing, stewing, stuffing and pickling. Eggplant’s overall culinary companions are other members of the nightshade family, including tomatoes, potatoes and peppers, both sweet and hot. The fruit also pairs well with garlic, onions and herbs such as basil, oregano, cilantro and parsley.
