Definitely Philipino Style. The type of Eggplant used is the long black eggplant that I believe is japanese eggplant.
Roast eggplant on the flame of your stove or open fire till the skin can be removed. (the skin will turn black) Place on plate. Mash the eggplant but it still should hold together. Do not remove stems. They will serve as a handle. =)
dash of milk
1/4 cup flour or less (optional)
Dip eggplant in egg mixture. Heat oil till very hot. Place eggplants in hot oil and pour egg mixture on top. Turn using the stem as a spatula.
