    Manami's Note:

    "After years of appearing on American dinner tables mostly as an ethnic specialty (as eggplant parmigiana, say, or maybe in a Szechuan-style stir-fry), eggplant has arrived as a mainstream food in this country." Saveur Magazine,1994. Anyway you cook it, I love it. This way it is so delicious! This can be an appetizer, side or the entire meal - that is the way I like it.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup flour
    • 1 1/4 cups white wine
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 medium eggplants, thinly sliced into rounds
    • vegetable oil
    • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place flour in a shallow bowl.
    2. 2
      Whisk wine into flour, beating until batter is smooth and the consistency of thin pancake batter, then season to taste with salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 200°F
    4. 4
      Salt or freeze eggplant slices to lessen bitterness and remove excess moisture.
    5. 5
      Pour vegetable oil into a heavy skillet to a depth of 2".
    6. 6
      Heat oil to 375°F or until it sizzles when you drop in a little batter. (If oil isn't hot enough, eggplant will absorb too much of it.)
    7. 7
      Dip eggplant slices in batter, then place into oil—as many at a time as you can without crowding the pan.
    8. 8
      Fry until golden, cooking on both sides, then drain on paper towels.
    9. 9
      Keep fried slices warm in oven.
    10. 10
      When all eggplant slices are cooked, season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon.
