200g bread crumbs (we love Diamond)

Mix the mayo ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.
Prepare aubergine batons for frying. Place flour and bread crumbs in a large shallow dish each. Mix 2 eggs and milk and place in a large bowl.
Heat avocado oil in a wok over medium hot heat.
Dip the Aubergine batons in flour, then egg mixture, then coat with the bread crumbs. Gently place the crumbed aubergine into the hot oil and deep fry until golden and crunchy for 2-3 minutes. Repeat in batches. Drain on kitchen towel.
Serve hot with the lemon dill mayo and a sprinkling of more fresh dill.
