Eggplant Fry

Yum
My mom used to make this eggplant dish same way she makes fish fry. The masala is same, but she sometimes replace fish with eggplant, we used to love both that time. But after marriage when I became vegetarian, I started making this with eggplant as my mom's. Its like fritters or pakoda but without deep frying and vegetarian. You have to make thick batter than pakoda so it coats the thin slices of eggplant and just shallow fry it and you can enjoy this with rotis or as it is.

Ingredients :

10 round slices of big purple eggplant
1 cup of besan (chickpea Flour)
pinch of ajwain (carom seeds)
salt to taste
1 tsp. of red chili powder
1 tsp. of Turmeric powder
1 tsp. of ginger, garlic and chili paste
3 tbsp. of oil

Method:

Cut the round thin slices of eggplant and keep it aside.
Take a bowl and add besan, ajwain, salt, powder masala, ginger, garlic and chili paste and add little water to make thick batter.
Add oil in shallow pan.
When its hot, take one slice and coat the slice on one side and put the coated side on heated oil.
Apply batter on other side too. Cook till its brown on other side and flip it.
Cook that side too and when its done, take it out on paper towel.
Finish with rest and serve hot with rotis.
