This is a great side dish that I learned about while teaching English in China. It goes well as a side dish with seafood, burgers, barbecued meats or almost anything!

Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Place the eggs in a separate bowl.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. A few at a time, dip the eggplant pieces into the egg, then into the flour mixture, then back into the egg, and back into the flour mixture. Fry the eggplant in the hot oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and serve immediately.

Bland, but much better with extra salt, pepper & garlic powder added to flour mixture. I had extra zucchini so "french fried" it as well; it turned out FAR SUPERIOR to the eggplant. The zuccini was a HIT WITH OUR 5 YEAR OLD!

Pretty messy to make, tasted pretty good but bland and not worth all the effort in my opinion. Maybe would be better with some spices added to the cornmeal/flour coating.
