CIAMBOTTA (GIAMBOTTA VEGETABLE STEW)


Cianbotta, in American called Giambotta, is a second dish of the South of Italy.

It is made with seasonal vegetables and is prepared especially in summer when the variety of vegetables is decidedly wider and more flavorful.

The ciambotta  is made with potatoes and onions in addition to zucchini, eggplants and peppers, typical vegetables of the summer period when they reach, in fact, the natural maturation.

 

 

 

The ciambotta is prepared, as well as in the Neapolitan area, in almost all the south of Italy.

Each variant is called a different name, with minimal variations in the recipe.

METHOD

The recipe for preparing ciambotta is very simple.

Clean the eggplants without peeling them, wash them and cut them into not too small pieces.

Cover them with a thin layer of fine salt and let them soak for about 20-30 minutes, in this way they will lose their water and bitter.

In the meantime wash the peppers, cut them in half and remove the internal seeds and the filaments.

Cut the peppers into not too small pieces and fry them in the hot oil.
