Delicious Greek Food: Domatokeftedes
Greek food is healthy and delicious.
Here’s a recipe of a well known plate to all those familiar with Greek Cuisine
Tomato Fritters – “domatokeftedes”
Makes approx. 16 fritters
4-5 large ripe Roma tomatoes, finely chopped
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
2 tbsp freshly chopped mint
1 tsp salt
freshly ground pepper
a “splash” of olive oil
250 grams plain flour
rice bran oil for frying **
Combine the tomatoes, onion, herbs, seasoning, olive oil and flour in a large bowl/ The mixture will be like a very thick pancake batter. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes.
Depending on the size of your frying pan heat up enough oil in a pan to shallow fry the fritters. The oil os ready when it reaches 180 deg C on a thermometer.
Drop in spoonfuls (using a dessert spoon or soup spoon is fine) of the tomato batter cooking a maximum of 3 fritters at a time. Cook for 2-3 on each side and drain on paper towels.
Sprinkle a little extra salt on top and serve with tzatziki or freshly squeezed lemon.
I like to use rice bran oil when deep or shallow frying. It’s quite neutral in taste and has a high smoke point.source: pinmania.net
