One of my favorite appetizers at an Indian restaurant is always the fried eggplant so I was hoping this recipe would give a similar result. I found that it was exceptionally easy and the result was great. I happened to add yellow curry powder and chili powder to the batter as well to give it that Indian flair (and I also needed to add a little bit more salt) and they turned out very good.
