Eggplant Fry


Fried eggplant is a simple and easy recipe. Eggplant is a wonderful vegetable but I like it best when fried and my mother had a tough time making us ( me and sister )eat this when we were kids. But we made no fuss when it was fried. This is definitely lot more calories but what is wonderful in this recipe is that it gets  fried crispy but not soggy. The best  way to fry eggplant is to use very little oil as it has a tendency to absorb and you will never get it crispy. It goes well with rice and dal/sambar, but it is also a nice snack or an appetizer.
 Try this recipe ..you will surely love this.

Ingredients
Egg plant big- 1
Italian bread crumbs- 1/2 cup
Chilly powder- 3/4 tsp
Pepper powder -a pinch
corn flour- 1 tsp
Egg-1
Chopped coriander leaves- 2 tsp
Chopped lemon grass- 1/2 tsp
Parmesan cheese- 1 tsp
salt to taste
oil for frying


Cut eggplant into half inch thick round pieces and sprinkle a little salt after a minute place them on  paper towel and gently press down and take off the excess water. Now marinate this with chilly powder, pepper powder and a pinch of salt if necessary.
Beat one egg and add chopped lemon grass, coriander leaves and Parmesan cheese and mix together.
In a plate spread bread crumbs.I used Italian bread crumbs but you can also use the plain bread crumbs too. 
Take the eggplant pieces one by one and roll them in corn flour and then dip into the egg mixture and finally into the bread crumbs. Heat two to three tsp of oil in a frying pan and fry both sides. Serve warm with rice and dal.

Thanks Akheela for sending this lovely card.

Hope you will all enjoy.
