Has anyone made them? I had some at a restaurant recently, and I'm trying to make them tonight using the recipe from this month's Bon Appétit (August 2011). Any tips?
To paraphrase the Bon Appétit recipe, you soak the cut pieces of eggplant in ice water for 2 hours or longer and toss them in rice flour and seasonings (while still damp) before frying. The recipe uses lemon zest and za'atar for seasoning, with a yogurt dipping sauce, but I'm going for a plain (well, salt/garlic powder) breading and a curry dipping sauce.
I'm curious to hear if anyone else has experience with these since I couldn't find them in a chowhound search (but I'm new here, so maybe I missed it). I'll come back later with a report!
ETA - Here is a link with the recipe I'm (roughly) trying: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/201...
