Eggplant Crispies

Baingan ke chips! Sounds funny or too different or simply too 
far fetched? You’ll think otherwise after making and tasting these. Ridiculously simple and so so tasty. Your kids are going to love this, and even the moms cos this is a much healthier option to potato chips. It’s not even deep fried, and is much more filling. So you can feel more satisfied with just a plateful than you do with even three bags of chips! There are so many ways you can use these – as chips for the party, as a side dish, as an appetizer, or just to put some on the salad to make it more wholesome and filling.

  • In a cup, mix all the spices and the salt.
  • Heat a little oil in a non stick pan.  
  • Place the eggplant slices on the pan so no slices overlap each other.
  • Keep the heat on medium.
  • After 5 mins or when you feel the slices have crisped up, turn their side. 
  • Sprinkle a little of the mixed spices on each slice and cover with a lid. This helps the crispies cook well.
