Preparation

  • Wash and pat dry the baingan.
    Slice it in 1/2 inch thin roundels( 1 large eggplant gives 10-12 slices)
  • Meanwhile, add 1 tbsp. oil in a bowl, mix all the spices.
    Coat this spice mix onto the slices, from both the sides.
  • Keep them covered for marinating for 15-20 mins. (optional step though I recommend)
  • Now heat the remaining 1 tbsp. oil in a flat pan, preferably nonstick.
    once the oil is hot, arrange the slices in 1 layer, should not be overlapping with each other.
  • Cook covered for 5-6 mins in a low-medium flame or until the lower side is brown.
    Flip all the slices up side down and fry the same way
  • Do the remaining slices in the same fashion. If required, add a few drops of more oil
  • Relish with plain RICE and Daal or as finger food/starters with some chaat masala sprinkled over them!!
