This quick and easy-to-make snack item can be eaten as it is or with dips such as tomato ketchup or mint chutney. Although eggplants are not a favourite amongst the masses, this dish will ensure that eggplants are devoured sans the fuss. We suggest you give a twist to the regular recipe by adding finely chopped cilantro or jalapeno to the batter.
