    1. Prepare the Eggplants:
      • Wash and dry the eggplants, then cut them into thin slices.
    2. Make the Batter:

    3. Heat Up The Oil:
      • Heat the frying oil in a high pan.
    4. Fry the Eggplants:
      • Dip each eggplant slice into the batter, ensuring it’s well-coated, and then carefully place it in the hot oil.
      • Fry until the beignets are golden brown and crispy.
      • Remove from the oil and place on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
      • Repeat the process with the remaining eggplant slices.

    • Let the batter rest for a few minutes to enhance its consistency.
    • Adjust spice levels to suit your taste preferences.
    • Use a kitchen thermometer to maintain the frying oil temperature for crispiness.
