  • 2-3 small eggplants
  • Milk
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Flour
  • Olive Oil
  • Honey or molasses
  1. Cut the eggplant in round slices or in matchsticks, depending on your preference.
  2. In a large bowl, cover the eggplant with milk and add a pinch of salt. Allow the eggplant to soak for about an hour (this is to draw out any bitterness).
  3. Drain the eggplant and coat the slices in the flour, which you can season with some salt and pepper if desired.
  4. Fry the slices in a deep, heavy pan with abundant olive oil. (Make sure the oil is very hot before adding the slices and fry in batches as to not overcrowd the pan!)
  5. Remove the eggplant and drain on paper towels. Season with a pinch of salt. Drizzle with honey or molasses before serving.
