This month, I was assigned to Trisha's blog, My Hobbie Lobbie. She cooks a lot differently than I normally do, so it was great to have the chance to look over her recipes and find something unique and different to try!
I was glad to have come across her recipe for Eggplant Patties, as I just so happen to have an eggplant that needed to be used up.
1 eggplant, approx 350g
1 cup bread crumbs, approximately
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ginger
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder
Crushed black pepper corns, to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
Cut the stalk of the eggplant, wash and cut into 4-6 large chunks and cook in salted boiling water until just about soft. ( I diced mine)
Mash it and add the breadcrumbs, egg, ginger, garlic, salt, cumin powder, chilly powder, crushed black pepper and mix well. You will need to adjust the quantity of bread crumbs used, based on how wet the batter is. The batter needs to be stiff enough to shape into round patties.
Dampen you hands with a little water so that the batter doesn't stick to it. Shape into round patties.
Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry the patties till they are a lovely golden brown.
4 Points+ for each patty! These were GOOD. Ed ate one then asked if he could take one to work with lunch tomorrow! :) I am ever so please and glad I was able to participate in the Secret Recipe Club. Until next time.... =)
