2) Place them in a dish and layer the aubergine slices with some salt. Cover and let the lot sweat off for an hour.
3) Meanwhile, make your batter : place your flour in a bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the two egg yolks a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of olive oil. Stir a little bit and start incorporating the cold milk gradually to avoid lumps.
Whisk the egg whites until stiff and fold them, carefully, into the batter.
