Directions:
Cut ends off eggplant. Cut into crosswise pieces. Sprinkle the slices generously on both sides with kosher salt and drain in a colander for 20 minutes (this takes out the bitterness).

Mix together the cornmeal, cornstarch, salt and pepper on piece of waxed paper or plate.

When the eggplant has finished draining, dry between paper towels. Heat 1" oil in a heavy skillet until hot but not smoking. Dredge eggplant slices in the cornmeal mix and shake off any excess.

Fry the eggplant in batches until it is crisp and golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes first side 1 the second side. Drain on rack or crumpled up paper towels.
