Simple Brinjal/Eggplant Fry as snack or side dish!

This post is about a very easy and quick snack which is eggplant (or brinjal) fry. This recipe has it all. Really really easy to prepare, a handful of ingredients and the tastiest result! What more could we ask? It can even be had as a side dish with rice and daal/rajma.chole. It adds just the right amount of spicy-ness. Here is the recipe -

Recipe customized from VahReVah.com


1 large Eggplant/Brinjal
For dry marinade:
1 1/2 Tsp Turmeric powder
2 Tsp Red Chilly Powder
Salt to taste
3 Tsp Rice Flour

  • Prepare a dry marinade by mixing all ingredients mentioned under 'For dry marinade' above. No need to add any water or oil
  • Cut the eggplant into thin round slices
  • Spread the dry marinade onto a plate with your hands. Now coat each eggplant slice on both sides with this. Since the eggplant has its own natural moisture, this will help the dry marinade to stick on both sides. Keep placing coated eggplant slices in a separate plate (to be fried at once)
  • In a wide low saucepan, pour about 2 tbsp oil, spread evenly and place as many eggplant slices as will fit. Fry each side for about 3 minutes or till done
  • Remove onto a wide plate with tissue paper. This helps remove excess oil
Thats it! So simple and quick. Plus eggplants are so easy to cut into slices. It is not required to peel them, but if you would rather peel them, then do go ahead. It tastes good any which way!
