Ingredients

  • Eggplant 250 gms (use purple color eggplant …can use long or small baby eggplant )
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon sesame seeds (optional but it taste really good)
  • ½ teaspoon red chili powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon oil.(groundnut oil /olive oil/canola oil)

Directions

  1. Cut the eggplant into thick slices of ½ inch . I don’t remove the skin as it has lots of nutrients and it keeps the wedges intact and looks good. If you don’t like the skin remove it while eating it .
