I followed the recipe exactly, but decided for time's sake not to roll up the eggplant strips after frying. I just served them as wedges with the saffron mayo. When slicing my eggplant, I first skinned two sides with my knife, so the slices I cut first from each of those ends would not be all skin on one side. One other tip: once oil is hot, fry at medium temperature. The eggplant in the olive oil seems to burn easily. 5 stars b/c my husband loved these and said the texture and breading were spot on (I however, don't care for eggplant in any capacity!)
