How To Deep Fry Eggplant With Less Oil



The thickest thing about Italian cuisine is Frying eggplant. An eggplant is very soft, delicate flesh with the tasty browned capsule. I have made an eggplant by using a little oil, pressing them to remove oil to soak up.

There are few people who like to eat eggplant with more oil. They sometimes spend more times in bed just like Python. But an eggplant having no oil or with less oil is delicious.

It has no possibility of health hazard. They frying system is very simple and easy. One can do it at home without facing any problem.


  • One large egg
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • N/A coarse salt
  • 1/2 spoon coarse salt plus additional for sprinkling the eggplant
  • one small eggplant (about 1/4 pound), cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • vegetable oil for deep-frying
  • one cup fresh bread crumbs
  • lemon wedges if desired


Keep cornstarch, the beaten egg with a half teaspoon of salt and bread crumbs in separate small bowls.

Dredge every eggplant portion in cornstarch, cover it methodically and remove excess oil, cover with egg mixture, search it in bread crumbs, press the crumbs to construct adhere.

Then keep the eggplant since it is coated with the paper towels and make it slightly dry. For a deep, profound skillet fry make a batch of the eggplant slices in half an inch using 375 degrees F. Use oil for every side as long as they hold golden brown color, alter them by tongs on paper towels for draining. Sprinkle additional oil on the eggplant and serve them with lemon wedges.
