4 Finish zaalouk

Once the eggplants are ready, set them aside to cool. Once cooled, peel the eggplants and discard their skins. Chop the softened flesh finely and add it to the pan. Add the remaining olive oil, white Balsamic vinegar, sugar and chopped fresh parsley and coriander. Simmer over a low heat for 8-10 min.
