Immerse them in Water for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes take out brinjals from water and sprinkle salt, red chilli powder, Dhania powder on them. Rub the spices on both the sides of Brinjal slices with your fingers.
Mix Suji and gram flour in a plate. Add salt and red chilli powder to it.
Now coat both the sides of Brinjal slices with this mixture. Keep aside
Meanwhile Heat 4 Tbsp oil in a flat bottomed pan Or tawa. When oil is heated put Brinjal slices in it. Put the flame to medium. When one side turns into a bright golden colour flip over and cook the other side of the slice till it turns into similar golden colour. . As Brinjals cook very fast it will only take 5 to 6 minutes to cook both sides.
When cooked on both sides serve these Brinjal Slices along with Yellow dal Tadka and boiled rice to make a delicious meal.
