BrinjaL Fry

 Brinjal sliced – 2
Onion sliced thin- 1
Curry leaves – a sprig
Chilly powder – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder -1/2 tsp
Salt – to taste
Oil – as needed

Make a thick paste with chilly powder and turmeric powder,adding little water.
Add this paste to the brinjal slices and mix them well such that each slice is  coated with the masala.
Shallow fry it in batches,turning both sides until  brown.
Drain it to a tissue paper and keep aside.
 Heat little oil(use the leftover oil from shallow frying) in a pan,and saute onion and curry leaves until onion turns translucent.Add it to the fried brinjal slices.
Mix and serve with rice.

N.B : Because the eggplant is bitter, after slicing the eggplant, soak the eggplant in heavily salted water. Rinse with cold water and pat dry. This will remove much of the bitter taste.
