Green tomatoes are real pretty, but it is hard to find recipes for them. Whenever I would look
at these beauties, all I could think of was ‘Fried Green Tomatoes’. So one day after grabbing some
green tomatoes from the garden, I set out on a recipe search. All the recipes basically involved
dipping in some kind of flour and frying it.
I could do that. Dip and fry. So I did and made these….
Step by step instructions:
After washing and drying the tomatoes, slice them into slightly thick rounds.
Take an egg and beat it. This is one part of the dipping process.
In a second plate, take some rava or semolina ( can substitute corn meal). Add salt and pepper to it.
Spice lovers, feel free to add some chili powder( do you see the potential here?).
Take a slice of tomato, dip in egg and then into the semolina. Drop into hot oil and deep fry.
Remove after the outside start turning a slight brown. Drop onto a paper towel to absorb the oil.Sprinkle some salt on top if you like and serve hot.
I had it with rice and curry. When Satish came home, I made a fresh batch and we ate it all by itself and was great.
I think the key is to have them while they are hot and just out of the oil.
