Dip each slice of eggplant into the flour mixture to coat well.

Create stacks by sandwiching eggplant slices between layers of green chutney

Optional: Crumble paneer or feta cheese over the chutney layers

Bake on 180 till done (be careful not to burn). The skin of the eggplant will be crispy but the flesh will be soft and delicious. Once done, top with yoghurt, crushed red chillies and fried green chillies (prepared in the airfryer) and dhania.
