Lusog Notes

This Crusted Cheesy Eggplant dish is high in vitamin B1 that helps release energy from food. It is also a source of calcium needed for bone health.

Chef's Tip

Eggplants are like sponges and will soak oil as you fry. To minimize oil absorption, be sure to get the oil at the proper temperature. Take a pinch of breadcrumbs then drop into the oil. The breadcrumbs should sizzle and turn golden brown in a few seconds when oil is ready.
