Eggplant parmesan


 I got the recipe from one of the popular tv shows & slightly altered. This is the best eggplant parmesan that i have ever tasted. Here is the recipe;


  • eggplant - 2 (sliced 1/4 inch )
  • Onion - 2 (chopped)
  • Tomatoes - 6 (chopped)
  • Olives - 1/4 cup
  • Garlic - 10 (chopped)
  • Olive oil as required
  • Mixed dried herbs -1/2 tsp
  • All purpose flour -  1/2 cup or as required
  • Parmesan cheese - 1-2 cups or as required
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat some olive oil in the pan over medium flame. 
  • Sauté garlic and then onions till it becomes translucent.
  • Add chopped olives and the tomatoes. Fry till it becomes mushy.
  • Now add some salt and the herbs.
  • Increase the flame and cook till it reaches the semi solid sauce consistency.
  • Apply little oil to the tray and keep it ready.
  • Dust the eggplant with the flour (mix little salt to the flour) and deep fry them.
  • Drain the excess oil and arrange the fried slices in the tray. Pour a spoon of prepare sauce on top of each egg plant and then sprinkle some cheese. This is one layer. 
  • Now repeat the process and make at least 2 or 3 more layers of eggplant. Finish the final layer with cheese.
  • Preheat the oven at 350 degree and place the tray. Leave it for few minutes or till the cheese melts.

                 I had some leftover sauce. I cooked some angle hair pasta and mixed it with the sauce. so that the complete meal is ready to serve.
