Baked Eggplant Sticks

baked-eggplant-sticks-indian-curry-shackHere’s a snack that seems decadent and yet delivers a healthy crunch. Baked Eggplant/Brinjal Sticks can be delectable starters for your get togethers or just relish them hot while watching a game on television alongside a chilled beer or your favourite fizzy drink.

Below are the steps for you all;

Preparation Time 10 minutes
Baking Time 12-13 minutes
Makes 24 sticks (depends upon the size of the eggplant/brinjal)
Main Ingredients Eggplant/Brinjal
Main Equipment  Oven
Course Appetizer/Snack
Level Of Cooking Easy


  • Eggplant/Brinjal  1 (Big – Oval)  sliced breadthwise into half and then each half cut into half lengthwise then each into 3-4 pieces lengthwise (depending on the thickness of your eggplant/brinjal the size of the strips may vary)
  • Egg Whites  3 large (whipped to very soft peaks)
  • Mustard Sauce  2 tablespoons (I used Truffle Mushroom Sauce for added flavour)
  • Finely Chopped Ginger 1/2 inch
  • Finely Chopped Garlic  4-5 cloves
  • Finely Chopped Green Chilli  1  (can make it two if you like hotter)
  • All-purpose Flour/Maida  1/2 cup
  • Salt  1 tablespoon (I used Truffle Salt for added flavour)
  • Black Pepper Powder  1/2 teaspoon
  • Bread Crumbs  1 1/2 cups
  • Freshly Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (Cheese)  3/4 cup
  • Olive Oil  for greasing the baking sheet


Step 1
Pre-heat the oven to 250 degree C/475 degree F. Grease the baking sheet with olive oil (you can use olive oil cooking spray too).

Step 2
In a shallow bowl, mix together the eggplant/brinjal strips, mustard sauce, 1 teaspoon olive oil, finely grated ginger, garlic, green chilli and salt to taste, put flour in a second bowl. Place the Breadcrumbs and Parmigiano-Reggiano (Cheese) in a bowl and mix them. Place the whipped Egg Whites with some salt and black pepper powder in a fourth bowl.eggplant-sticks-steps-indian-curry-shack

 Step 3
Dredge the eggplant/brinjal sticks in the flour mixture and then dip them into the egg whites. Finally, dredge them in the breadcrumbs. Place the coated eggplants/brinjals on the prepared baking sheet and roast, turning once, until crispy (about 15-20 minutes).eggplant-sticks-baked-steps-indian-curry-shackServe hot with Aioli (French Dip/Sauce) or Mustard Sauce or Peri Peri sauce on the side.

If you don’t  have an oven at home then just shallow fry these in olive oil like I did for some unbaked coated eggplant/brinjal sticks. We loved these too. Piping hot on the outside and tender and juicy inside.


I’m sharing these with other foodies at Angie’s Fiesta Friday #157.
