EggPlant Fritters with Spiced Yoghurt

eggplant fritters

I found this recipe from Donna Hay magazine [Issue 30, Celebrate (Dec/Jan 06)] pretty interesting. It's a very simple recipe, delicious too with the yoghurt dip. A great finger food for parties and yes, another kiddy friendly food that hides vegetables.

EggPlant Fritters with Spiced Yoghurt

1 cup char-grilled eggplant
1 cup canned chickpeas, drained and mashed roughly
1 tbsp plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 lightly beaten eggs
2 green onions (scallions), sliced thinly
sea salt and cracked black pepper
vegetable oil for shallow frying

Spiced Yoghurt

3/4 cup Greek yoghurt (I used the normal variety)
1/4 tsp cumin (go easy on this if you can take the strong smell and taste of cumin)
sea salt and cracked black pepper

To make the Spiced Yoghurt, combine all ingredients and set aside.

For the fritters, mix all ingredients except the vegetable oil thoroughly.

Heat oil (pour in enough for shallow frying) in non-stick pan. Drop tablespoons of the mixture and cook in batches. Cook each side for 2-3 mins or golden brown or cooked through. Drain on absorbent paper and serve with spiced yoghurt dip.

I've some over-riped mango sitting in my fridge, so I made another dip by adding chopped mangoes and green onions into the yoghurt dip. It changes the flavour instantly. The mangoes brought some sweetness to the dip. Went well with the fritters.

This is Donna Hay recipe. Do you know that the eggplant here in Aussieland are so big. Some of it you can get bigger than the tennis ball. I havent seen that big eggplant in Malaysia.
