30 CHINESE STYLE BRINJAL

Chinese style Brinjal Fry


This is one of mom's favourite dish and also sister's. Mom used to make this style of brinjal very often in my house. She got this recipe from one of her tamil magazine many years back when we were in school. She tried it out immediately and everyone became a fond for this dish. It tastes good with the long variety of brinjal preferably the green ones. I did not get nay green one's so I tried the same with purple ones which was equally good.

Long brinjal - 2
Onion - 1 large chopped fine
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Chilli powder -1 tsp
Pepper powder - few sprinkles
Salt as needed
Soya sauce - 1 - 1 1/2 tbsp
Oil - 1 1/2 tbsp

For the batter
Corn flour - 3 - 4 tbsp
Maida/all purpose flour - 3 - 4 tbsp
Salt as needed


Oil for deep frying


Make a batter by mixing the flours and salt along with water just enough to get a dropping consistency

Cut the brinjal into thin slices( around 1/2 cm thickness). Dip the slices in the batter and deep fry them till crisp in hot oil.
In a different pan heat oil and add chopped onions. Fry till golden brown and add ginger and garlic paste. Saute for a minute and add salt, pepper powder, chilli powder and mix once. Immediately add the fried brinjal slices and mix. Also add soya sauce and mix well. Can garnish with chopped cilantro/coriander leaves or green onions.
