    6.  Dip the eggplant sticks in the egg and then the flour. 
    7. Dip in the egg again and then in the breadcrumbs and cheese mixture and place in the baking dish in a single layer. 
    8. Keep doing it till all the eggplant sticks are done.
    9. Bake for 20-25 mins till the fries are golden brown. Flip the eggplant sticks after 10-12 mins, carefully to cook on both sides.
