Brinjal / Vankaya  3
Gram flour / Besan 1 cup
Rice flour 2 spoons
Chili powder 1/2 spoon
Salt to taste

Oil for deep frying


Cut brinjal into long thin slices like potato chips.
Add them to  salt water as soon as you cut them.
In a mixing bowl add gram flour, rice flour, salt and chili powder.

My mother in law used to love these , but we used to make with Besan , I am sure rice flour must be tasting different .

I'd have to substitute another vegetable as I hate eggplant - otherwise looks like such a crispy snack - perfect for cold winter evenings
