Fried Eggplant with Sumac and Garlic Yogurt Dip

Experience a new twist on your favorite eggplants with this Fried Eggplant with Sumac and Garlic Yogurt Dip recipe. It's so easy to prepare and tastes amazing!

Serves 2


  • Olive oil
  • 300 grams small Asian eggplants (they are short and skinny)
  • 2 heaping tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • Sumac



  1. Heat a couple of glugs of olive oil in a skillet. Slice the small Asian eggplants lengthwise into two. When oil is hot lay eggplants cut-side down in the pan. Fry until golden brown and then turn. Fry the other side until eggplant is cooked. I like mine with crisp edges but still soft in the center. If you’d like to fry it until totally crisp go ahead!
  2. While the eggplants are frying, prepare the yogurt dip. Mix yogurt, garlic, and olive oil in a bowl. Add sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste. Store it in the fridge until ready to serve. Top with a sprinkling of sumac just before serving.
  3. When eggplants are done, fish them out of the pan and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Dust liberally with sea salt and sumac. Serve with the yogurt dip.
  4. Serves two as a side dish.
