  • 1 eggplant, cut into thick wedges
  • 1 Tbsp coarse sea salt plus extra, for seasoning
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 2/3 cup beer
  • 1 Tbsp thyme, plus extra, for sprinkling
  • 1 tsp finely grated lemon rind
  • Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
  • Garlic Yoghurt
  • 1 cup Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper


1. Place eggplant in a colander over a large bowl, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of salt. Stand for 1 hour.

2. To make the batter, sift flour into a large bowl. Gradually whisk in beer until batter is smooth. Add thyme, lemon rind and season with extra salt. Stand for 1 hour.

3. To make the garlic yoghurt, combine ingredients in a small bowl. Season to taste.

4. Heat oil in a large saucepan or wok and bring to a high heat(at least 190°C). Rinse eggplant under cold water and pat dry with absorbent paper. Dip eggplant into batter and shake away excess.
