  • 1 - Large eggplant (2 lbs)

  • 1.5 cup - Chickpea flour
  • 2 tbsp - cilantro, chopped

How to Make Brinjal Fritters

  • Mix the beaten egg, flour and enough water to make a batter. Let the batter be thick.
  • Add a few spices like red chilli powder, salt and pepper powder.
  • Cut the eggplant/baingan vertically in thin slices of 1/4 inch or smaller.
  • Add the slices to the batter and keep it for 30 minutes so the batter can be absorbed into the thinly cut eggplant slices.
  • Use a little extra oil (preferably olive) in your wok.
  • Heat the oil properly till you see light fumes appearing or test with a deep fry thermometer.
  • When ready, pull out the eggplant slices with batter and drop them into your wok.
  • Fry till fritters turn light brown.
  • Remove them on to a plate with tissue paper to drain out the oil.
