Baigani makes use of phoulourie batter for an end product very similar to classic. Indian pakoras (battered-fried vegetables). Although it is not traditionally Trinidadian, I will sometimes substitute slices of large zucchini for the eggplant. If you use Chinese or white eggplants, the baigani (bhaijias) will have a more delicate flavor and make for a lovely appetizer.
