Torta means fried in English Talong is know as Eggplant. Although Nutritionist never find any nutrients in this vegetable still its one I love and we prepare for Dinner or Lunch with egg. So its up to you if you going to try it but I know many love this one, why not make a try as its just easy to prepare and good for the budget as well.
Here's What You Need:
2 Talong ( Eggplang)
2 egg beaten
salt, pepper to taste
tomato, cilantro or kinchay to garnish
Here's How To Make It:
1. Roast the eggplant, either in the oven or over gas flame (latter is preferable) until the outside skin is charred. Peel off the skin and mash the flesh with a fork. Make sure to keep the whole thing as intact as possible.
2. In a skillet, fry the onion until translucent and remove. To prepare one torta, beat an egg in a bowl, then dip the eggplant. Hold the whole thing by the stem and don't dip that part in the egg. Add salt and pepper to taste, add finely chopped cilantro or kinchay to the egg mixture. Just repeat for the other one eggplant.
3. Heat oil in a frying pan, then when the oil is hot, add the mixture to the pan and layer some onion to the top of it. Let it set then turn over with a spatula. Remove and place in a plate then garnish with tomato slices an cilantro/kinchay. Serve with rice and happy eating !
