Deep Fried Eggplants with Sweet and Sour Sauce

On with 0 Comment
I tried this recipe after getting some tips from the neighbor and it came out so well. Frying eggplants is no big deal but the accompanying sauce is what adds kick in the recipe. Depending on your taste, you can easily moderate the level of spice in the sauce. Leftovers of this recipe can be stuffed in sandwiches and pies. Use long strips of eggplants so that they are not only fried well but the sauce is also absorbed evenly to get the best results. You can also bake these spiced up eggplants in a layer of cheese instead of deep frying them. Tofu in fried form can also be added in this yummy recipe to increase the number of servings. Let's make this scrumptious, zingy and flavorful eggplant recipe for our loved ones.
