RECIPE NOTES

  • Enjoy these crispy eggplant fingers with your favorite dipping sauce. I used sweet chilli sauce for this recipe as my dipping sauce and it tastes soooo good! My kids tried it with ketchup and they loved it too! Mayo garlic dipping sauce can be a good dip as well!
  • If you don’t have cornstarch, you may use all purpose flour or rice flour as alternative.
  • Put the eggplant in water to prevent it from darkening especially if you are cooking lots. Keep it in water while still not ready to cook.
