Fried Eggplant

This is my mother in laws recipe, I love learning her recipes that my husband grew up eating. No one cooks better than your mama. I know my husband appreciates when I cook something his mom used to cook for him. Hope you enjoy this recipe.


  • 1 large eggplant
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 gloves garlic pressed
  • 2 tea spoons chopped cilantro
  • Salt + pepper
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Peal the skin from eggplant. ( I use a potato peeler to make it easier. Thinly slice.
  2. Season one side with salt upside down on a dish. ( season it lightly) keep repeating this process for each slice and stack them.
  3. Leave for 30-45 min. You will see all the liquid. ( doing this will prevent the eggplant to observe oil when frying)
  4. Wash each slice to get rid of all the salt light squeeze to dismiss all water. Repeat for each piece.
  5. Heat a pan with oil for frying.
  6. Fry each eggplant till turns golden brown on each side. Place onto paper town to drain any oil
  7. Mix together mayo and a pinch of salt and pepper and pressed garlic. Spread on each eggplant. Roll it in three or half.
  8. Top it fresh chopped cilantro

AboutLily’s Cooking & Home

My story, I met the love of my life when I was 16 and two years later we were married. When we first got married I was not much of a cook, I would buy so many cook books and try recipes over and over again until it would turn out. I never gave up and my husband can tell you I had my share of bad cooking. The more I practiced the better I got. Now we are going on 10 years of happily married. I love to cook and create my own recipe also became a baker, I have also taken interest in doing home design and decor. In my blog I would love to share with you the recipes I create, recipes I find and love to share also tips for home decor and ideas.
