    About this recipe: Savoury brinjal with a hint of spice. Serve as a starter or side dish, or put on top of bread with lots of melted cheese. For a low fat dish, I recommend grilling these rounds rather than frying, but they are delicious either way!

    Serves: 6 

    • 85g cornmeal (polenta)
    • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • salt to taste
    • 1 brinjal, washed and sliced into 1cm (1/2 in) rounds
    • Vegetable oil for frying

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. In a shallow dish, combine polenta, chilli powder, oregano and salt. Coat each brinjal slice in this mixture until thoroughly coated on both the sides. Shake off excess.
    2. Heat a small layer of oil in a large frying pan. When the oil is hot arrange a layer of the brinjal rounds in the oil and fry uncovered for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the rounds over and fry until golden brown.
    3. Continue adding oil and frying the rounds until they are all fried. Alternatively, cook the brinjal rounds under the grill on a baking tray lightly greased with olive oil, turning over halfway through cooking. Serve hot or cold.
