Spicy Eggplant Bites

Ingredients to make Spicy Eggplant Bites

  • 1 medium eggplant/baingan
  • All-purpose flour/maida
  • Milk for dipping the eggplant slices
  • 2 cups of dried bread crumbs or crushed cornflakes
  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • ½ teaspoon Dried Italian seasoning
  • salt to taste
  • oil for Deep frying
  • Marinara sauce or tomato Sauce for dipping

How to make Spicy Eggplant Bites

  1. Wash and slice the eggplant into slices (about ¼ inch to ½ inch slices). Lay them on a baking sheet or pan. Sprinkle both the sides with salt evenly. Leave in pan to release the moisture, for about 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the breading mixture:
  3. Crush cornflakes in a small blender. In a 3 separate bowls, place some flour, milk and breadcrumbs or crushed cornflakes (I had some breadcrumbs leftover from the pinwheel sandwiches I had make earlier so I mixed them with crushed cornflake
  4. Stir about 1 teaspoon of crushed chilli flakes and ½ teaspoon of dried Italian seasoning into the cornflakes or breadcrumbs. Pat dry the eggplant slices with a tissue paper or paper towel to remove excess moisture.
  5. Heat some oil for deep frying. Working one at a time, dip the slices first in flour, then milk and then coat evenly with the cornflakes-breadcrumbs mixture; make sure both the sides of the slices are well coated.
  6. Once again, dip in milk and breadcrumb mixture to coat evenly. If you want a thicker crust for the eggplant bites, dip more time in milk and breadcrumb mixture. Place on a separate plate.
  7. Once the oil is hot, deep fry the coated and breaded eggplant slices in batches of 3 till golden brown, flipping over in between. Place on a paper towel lined plate to remove excess oil.
  8. Serve hot, crispy and spicy eggplant bites with homemade marinara/spaghetti sauce, ketchup or your favorite sauce. Enjoy!!!!

My Tip:

If you don’t have Italian spices, use any spice you like. Breadcrumbs, cornflakes or a mixture of both gives good crunch to these delightful fritters. Please check out my recipe of Homemade Marinara Sauce in my Recipe Section. Feel free to add garlic powder or even cheese powder in the breadcrumbs for added flavor. If you do not relish the idea of deep frying, shallow fry them or you can even bake them.
