1. When the eggplant is over-oiled, the moisture in it can be fried, and it will be more delicious when it is braised.

2. The braised eggplant can be peeled or not peeled, according to personal preference.

3. (1) Observe the color and impurities of the oil. If the oil is dark in color and has many impurities, it is recommended not to eat it; if the oil is not too dark in color and there are few impurities, such oil can continue to be eaten, and the remaining oil is allowed to stand before eating to remove the impurities that settle on the bottom.
(2) After frying fish, mutton and other foods, there will be a fishy smell in the leftover oil. You can put a few slices of ginger in the leftover oil and heat it for half a minute.
(3) If there is a sticky smell in the leftover oil, you can heat the leftover oil first, and then filter the food residue with a filter cloth, so that the sticky smell can be basically eliminated.
(4) Leftover oil can be used to make steamed buns or dumplings. You can put a little leftover oil on the dough, or add a little leftover oil when making fillings, which can better lock the moisture in the vegetables.
(5) When the leftover oil is used for cooking, you need to add raw oil for heating first, and then add the leftover oil, so as to avoid secondary heating of the leftover oil.
(6) The leftover oil can be used to make cold dishes.
