Following on my recent post on aubergines, here is another very simple but delicious aubergine dish, which is great as a snack/starter with the slice of rye bread or it can be a side dish too. It is ideal for the picnics and BBQs. This time it’s My Mum’s recipe:

AUBERGINE FRITTERS

Ingredients:

2 aubergines

3-4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

about 1 cup of bread crumbs

sal/pepper

1/2 cup of fresh basil leaves, chopped

olive oil for frying

Method:

1. Wash the aubergine, cut into round slices, place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

2. Heat up a frying pan  with a few spoons of olive oil, wait till it hot, but do not allow the oil to burn.

3. Put the bread crumbs on a separate plate, take each slice of aubergine, dunk the both sides into the bread crumbs and place it on a frying pan. Allow about 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden coloured and cooked through.

4. Place it on a plate, garnish with fresh chopped basil and garlic.
