Pan Fried Eggplant Recipe!!

I prefer vegetables over meat and out of so many to choose from, Eggplant definitely is my favorite. I know two different ways of cooking eggplant. One is the curry form which I already have a recipe of (click here) and another is pan fried version. This particular one especially goes really  well with simple steamed rice and lentil (dal). And need not to mention, it is super easy to prepare at the same time. Without further due, below is the detail process to make the super yummy and simple Pan Fried Eggplant :)
