brinjal fry recipe

i often make phodi or kaap or rava fries as a side veggie dish to go with khichdi or dal rice. fritters made from veggies are called as phodi in konkani language and kaap in marathi language. the vegetables are sliced, marinated with spices and then dredged with rice flour or rava (sooji or cream of wheat), later to be pan fried or shallow fried.

vangyache kaap or brinjal phodi is the maharashtrian and konkani version of sliced fried brinjal rounds. these crispy brinjal rounds are similar to the way begun bhaja is made in bengali cuisine. each home has their own variation of making brinjal phodi or baingan fry. i make brinjal phodi using less spice powders and dredging the brinjal slices with rava (sooji) or rice flour. you can even use besan (gram flour).

to make baingan fry, use the large variety of brinjal (aubergine) that is used for making baingan bharta. there should be less seeds in the brinjal.

to make this baingan fry recipe, the veggies are shallow fried in oil. since brinjal absorbs a lot of oil, i pan fry them and use less oil while frying. the vegetable fries can be baked or air fried also.

serve brinjal fry hot or warm as a side dish with khichdi or dal-rice.

  1. Hi Dassana,
    The recipe sounds easy to make. I have a couple of brinjals at home and I thought this recipe would be great for dinner. Question – while buying brinjals, how do you know if they have less or more seeds? Also, if the brinjals I have at home have more seeds would this dish be made differently? I ask as you’ve mentioned less seeds a few times. Thanks for your help!

    • thanks mel. brinjals with less or no seeds are lighter in weight as compared to brinjals with more seeds. so if a brinjal feels light in your hand, then it will have less seeds.
