This innovative recipe offers you one more interesting way to enjoy your all-time favourite Eggplant Bhajiya.

Bhajiyas made of eggplant have a timeless popularity due to their unique texture, which is crisp outside and succulent inside. You need to slice the brinjals of a medium thickness, neither thick nor thin, coat them with a spicy besan batter, and deep-fry them on a medium flame to get real crisp bhajiyas.

While you will be tempted to munch on these bhajiyas straight away, spare a few more minutes to transform them into another marvellous culinary treat.

Drizzle some curd and tongue-tickling chutneys on the bhajiyas, sprinkle some crunchy onions and spice powders, and voila, your bhajiyas have turned into a super delicious Eggplant Chaat! Serve it immediately to experience the crispness along with the juicy toppings.
