1) Wash eggplant thoroughly and pat dry. Cut the ends and chop eggplant crosswise into 1/2 inch slices.

3) Take a clean large bowl and put slices eggplants in it. Drizzle cayenne, black pepper, and cumin on the slices and toss well to coat.
4) Take two heavy duty skillets and place them on high heat.
5) Take about 2 tablespoons of flour and drizzle it on the eggplant slices. Toss to coat evenly.
