Eggplants should be covered with water completely. If the pieces pop up, press down with the lid of the pan. Leave them for a while and do other vegetables.
The queue for the bow. We turn on the slow cooker for the “Frying” program, set the time for 30 minutes, pour vegetable oil into a multi-cup and chop onions. As soon as the oil warms up, we send onions to the slow cooker. Fry it to transparency.
Carrot. It goes well with caviar if cut into strips or grate on a coarse grater. We send in a multi-cup to the onion and fry for 5 minutes.
While the carrots and onions are being heat treated, prepare the peppers. Wash it thoroughly, clean the seeds, remove the stem. Cut into cubes of the desired size and add to the onions and carrots.
Important! Periodically mix the vegetables with a silicone spatula.
Drain the water from the eggplants, put them into the multi-cup and continue to fry the vegetables all together for 10 minutes.
