Fried Eggplant Strips

1 smallish eggplant
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 egg
1 Tbsp water

Peel the eggplant if desired, and cut into 1/2-inch-square strips (like steak fries). Beat the egg with water; mix the panko, salt, and chili powder in a zip-top bag. Dip the eggplant in the egg wash, then shake with the breading mix. Deep fry for 4 minutes in 325F oil. Drain well.

Serve with ketchup, mayo, or your favorite dressing (I like honey mustard).
