Eggplant Crisps!


As I am half way with my AFAM roundup I thought I will finish posting my JFI. It is a real busy week for me and still trying to meet all ends. AFAM contributors please bear with me.

I love eggplants and the most important part is, it has to be freshly cooked may it be sambar or subzi. When ever It gets ignored in the fridge for a while , then this recipe works out well.

Ingredients

10 small or medium sized eggplants
oil for deep frying
salt
red chilli powder

Preparation

Cut the eggplants into thin slices as seen in the picture. Deep fry them in oil and you can make out when they are done. Remove and drain excess oil out of the eggplants. Take 1tsp salt and 1tsp chilli powder and mix them together. slightly sprinkle the salt/chilli powder mix on the eggplants and gently toss them so that they get coated evenly. They go great with rice/rasam or sambar combination.

I am not a big eggplant fan, but these eggplant fries are Bengali favorites. My hubby loves to have them not only with Tice and dal but with Poori

Sharmi, dearest, I have never heard or thought of making eggplants this way. I have bookmarked the recipe and this week when I go to the market I will definitely get some eggplants and try making this dish.

These look great. Wonder if i can oven-bake them to avoid frying them?

Sharmi said...

Poonam, I will surely add you.

Wokandspoon, ya you can oven bake them till they get crisp. thats a great idea too.
