4 eggplants (medium size)
2 dl /.75C balsamic vinegar
1 fresh chili (optional if you don't like it hot)
1 garlic clove

Rinse the eggplant to remove the salt and dry them well using a towel. Spray or drizzle with olive oil and grill until golden brown.Turn the slices and do the same on the other side. Let cool.
In a pan, heat the vinegar with the slices garlic clove and chilies and cook until you get a syrup consistence (about 10 minutes). Let cool.
