Following on my recent post on aubergines, here is another very simple but delicious aubergine dish, which is great as a snack/starter with the slice of rye bread or it can be a side dish too. It is ideal for the picnics and BBQs. This time it’s My Mum’s recipe:
3-4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
about 1 cup of bread crumbs
1/2 cup of fresh basil leaves, chopped
olive oil for frying
1. Wash the aubergine, cut into round slices, place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
2. Heat up a frying pan with a few spoons of olive oil, wait till it hot, but do not allow the oil to burn.
3. Put the bread crumbs on a separate plate, take each slice of aubergine, dunk the both sides into the bread crumbs and place it on a frying pan. Allow about 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden coloured and cooked through.
4. Place it on a plate, garnish with fresh chopped basil and garlic.
