Degorging is the process of removing the moisture from vegetables by applying salt. By doing so, it softens the vegetable and reduces the oil absorbed. Some of the common vegetables where Degorging is applied include Eggplant, zucchini, cucumbers and cabbages.
You can also remove the bitter taste from vegetables using Degorging. For cucumber and eggplant, a certain amount of bitterness can be removed by peeling. In the case of eggplant, the bitter taste is due to the buildup of a brown colored toxin, which can upset the stomach.
