Eggplant Fritters

How to make Eggplant Fritters

Fritter is any type of food coated in batter and deep fried. Fritters are in high demand in the rainy, gloomy weather. The batter for this snack is made with chickpea flour.

Here is what we need -

Eggplant - You could use 1 big eggplant or 3-4 small brown ones
1 cup chickpea flour
2 tbs rice flour
1/2 spoon Ajwain or bishop's weed
1 spoon chili powder
pinch of turmeric
salt per taste
pinch of sodium bi-carb
oil to deep fry

What Next -

Heat oil in heavy bottom pan.

Wash and cut eggplants in thin round slices. To make batter take chickpea flour in a bowl, add rice flour, turmeric, chili powder, salt, ajwain to it. Add around 1 cup water to make pouring consistency batter. Add sodium bi-carb.

Drop very little batter in the oil to check if its ready, If the batter comes up right away it is hot enough.

Dip eggplant slices in the batter one by one and drop it in the oil carefully. Add 4-5 at a time. In a minutes turn the fritters to other side. Take it out when its golden brown in color.

I love to eat fritters in the evening with my cup of hot ginger tea.
