Method

We would like to thank our member Mary Patoula for this wonderful recipe.

  • Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • Wash the eggplants and cut them in half, lengthwise. Score the flesh, drizzle with some olive oil and season with salt.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, flesh side down, until they soften.
  • When ready, remove from oven. Scoop out the flesh and coarsely chop. You will know when they are ready when you can easily pierce them with a knife, without any resistance.
  • In a bowl, combine the egg, olive oil, honey, flour, breadcrumbs, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper, using a whisk.
  • Add the chopped eggplants and mix.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and mix until completely combined.
  • Cover bowl and set aside for half an hour. This will help the aromas blend better together.
  • At this point, if the mixture seems to be too runny, add another tablespoon of flour, at the most.
  • Add spoonfuls of the mixture to a pan with a generous amount of hot sunflower oil. Do not crowd the pan.
  • Cook until golden on both sides.
  • When ready, transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and allow excess oil to drain.
  • Serve warm.
