Ingredients Serving: 2

  1. Brinjal (less seeds variety) - 2 or 3, medium or big in size
  2. Besan - 1 cup
  3. Rice flour 1/4 cup
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Red Chilly Powder 1\2 tsp (or as per taste)
  6. Pepper Powder 1 or 2 pinches
  7. Jeera 1/4 tsp, coarsely powdered
  8. Cooking Soda a pinch
  9. Oil for frying


  1. Wash and slice brinjals into thin circles. Immerse them in water to avoid any decolouring of brinjals until we use them.
  2. Sieve besan and remove the lumps if any. Mix besan, rice flour, red chilly powder, salt, pepper powder, jeera powder and cooking soda in a bowl.
  3. Heat oil for deep frying. Strain the brinjal slices and keep it ready.
  4. When the oil is hot, take a tablespoon of hot oil and pour it over the besan mixture. Mix it well using water and make a fine paste of dosa batter consistency.
  5. Keep the flame on medium-hot mode. Dip the brinjal slices into the batter and deep fry till golden in colour.
  6. Drain on kitchen tissue to remove excess oil and serve hot with any chutney or sauce.
