- 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.
