Why do you let eggplant sit in salt?
Because like some other vegetables eggplant is filled with moisture. Adding salt to it will draw out the moisture and when cooked will give you more flavor and softer texture.
Should you rinse eggplant before cooking?
Preparing the eggplant to cook you would first peel the eggplant as the skin is bitter. Then cut it in shapes that you would like to cook it with. Place them in a colander and salt them. This way the moisture that comes out of them will drip out and then you would wash them off before cooking to remove all the excess salt.
Should I salt eggplant or soak in milk?
According to some people the milk will draw out the bitterness and the eggplant soaks it up the milk easily. This helps when you sauté or fry the eggplant as it will not soak up the oil.
Do you eat the seedy part of eggplant?
For the fresh eggplant the seeds would be invisible and totally edible. For an older eggplant the seeds would be little browner and more bitter. Then you can scoop them out.

Chinese stuffed eggplant is a popular dim sum dish that also makes a great lunch or dinner meal when served with rice. What I like most about this dish is that it uses less oil than most Chinese eggplant recipes, or for that matter, any eggplant recipe, but is still very satisfying.
