    My daughter-in law also adds diced tomato and chopped onion to one side when she dips the slices in the egg mix. Eggplants are hard to come by where I live, especially the smaller ones.

    this recipe is simple and very plain…
    when i’m doin this,,i put a bit of flour into the egg after beating it so that it act as a binder for the eggplant not to scatter in the pan when frying…and of course, for some unique touch and texture,add some white onions and tomatoes, and some spring onions… =)
