    Chef`s Tip
    Eggplants are like sponges and will soak a lot of oil when fried. To avoid soaking a lot of oil, make sure the oil is hot so that the crust forms immediately and browns. Also, make sure to avoid overcrowding the pan which will cool down the oil, causing the eggplant to soak more oil.
