SPICY OVEN BAKED BRINJAL CRISPS


This oven baked brinjal crisps is a great snack on a rainy day. This is a quite common snack in India which is often available in bakeries in India, but "DEEP FRIED". I just wanted to break that "FRYING" part. Tried  the same thing in the oven. With olive oil and the same Indian spices it came out very well. Spicy too.........I had the small stripy brinjals which are little bit bitter compared to the long ones.

If you prefer to avoid the bitter part use the long purple brinjals. You can check on the health benefits of eating brinjal  in the link below. By cooking this way you can get the wholesome benefit of brinjals which is good for diabetic and high cholestrol patients.
