Servings 4 people

Equipment

  • Sharp knife
  • Cutting board
  • Rubber spatula
  • Pan

Ingredients

  • 2 eggplants
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 12 oz beer (330ml)
  • 7 oz flour
  • black pepper
  • salt
  • vegetable oil

Instructions

  • We start by washing and cutting the end of the eggplants
  • Next we cut them into thin slices
  • We add the eggplant slices over an oven tray wrack and sprinkle them with salt. We leave them like this for 30 minutes to get the water out so that they don’t become bitter and they are easier to fry
  • In a big bowl we add the beer, 1 teaspoon of salt, the black pepper and the oregano
  • Now we whisk in the flour. Do this in several steps and make use of the colander, also.
  • Add this mixture in the fridge for 15 – 30 minutes
  • Then dry the eggplant slices with a paper towel and add them on a plate
  • In a preheated pan at high heat we add the vegetable oil enough to cover the eggplant slices
  • After the oil has reached the frying temperature we take an eggplant slice and put it in the beer mixture and then in the frying pan. Fry 3 slices at a time so they don’t stick together, and they don’t decrease the oil’s temperature. Cook them for 2 mins on each side or until golden brown
  • Let them rest on a plate covered with some paper towel to remove the excess oil
Cuisine: Greek, Mediterranean
