This recipe is so simple and cheap, and yet so yummy. In the South of Italy it’s called “Indorate e fritte”, my aunts make them every other day.
It’s very versatile: you can eat the fried aubergines on their own with a mixed salad, or in a bun, as vegetarian Burgers. They are great used to make “parmigiana” – aubergine pie. Finally, you can cut them small and serve them as nibbles on a little cracker. We like to give them to the children as a snack, as a healthy option instead of bought chips. The choice is yours, so I leave you to this great recipe. Do let me know if you like it!
2 spoonful of grated parmesan cheese
a bowl of plain flour
1) peel the aubergines and slice them thinly (keep the skin and use it for pasta)
3) gently squeeze the aubergines, toss them in flour
4) beat the eggs and season with the cheese and dip in the egg mixture
5) heat abundant oil in a large frying pan, and fry the aubergine slices on both sides, they cook really quickly, so make sure u take them out when they are just golden and put them on a plate covered with kitchen paper for excess oil.
The quickest way to do this is to prepare all the slices in flour first, and put them in egg, before starting frying. Eat them really hot.
