“Eggplant and potato fry” name self-explains that it is a fry recipe, but fry is not a deep fry or so. It is made with a normal proportion of oil but overall gives the taste as if fried. It tastes so good that can be served as appetizers or with roti, chapati or dal rice. This a dry sabji, but taste good with chapati. I have my breakfast with chapati bhaji every day and sometimes when I don’t get time to cook, this becomes an easy option. And yes when you run out of vegetables.  This is a good menu for making sabji. Only potatoes also work wonder, no need to add eggplant. I have mixed, two different eggplants and potato with skin and without skin. So let’s start
