The purple magic!

Aubergine/Eggplant fry

The glossy, purple aubergines could come to your plate in many delicious forms but believe me, this is one of the best dishes! Hardly any oil in these crunchy, delicious aubergine circles and you will come to love them either as a side dish or a starter! It is indeed purple magic!

Aubergines are healthy, versatile, and supremely delicious when prepared with care. The soft middle can absorb a lot of oil like a sponge, so it is wise not to deep fry or add too much oil into any dish you prepare using this vegetable.
