Aubergine or Eggplant Fritters

Now this one 's really, really naughty. 
Then again, it's got aubergines/eggplants in it; so can't be that bad after all. 
A pretty good way to get kids to enjoy their veggies and you can use any of them: cawliflower, broccoli, peppers... 
Come to think of it, it's quite good actually. 
There you have it: a quick lesson in how to convince yourself that fried food's good for you. 
Kidding aside: all in moderation of course!
  Tried & Tasted Recipe
  • 2 aubergines
  • 200 g. flour
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • a small bottle of beer (25 cl.)
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • Oil for deep-frying
In a large bowl, put flour, egg yolks, oil, salt and pepper; then start mixing as you add the beer until you get a thick batter. You might not need the whole beer; so do as you will with the rest of it ;-)
Slice the aubergines sideways (a quarter-inch or half-cm thick) and slightly fry  in a little oil. Reserve on kitchen paper.
Beat the egg whites and add gently to the batter.
Heat the oil and deep-fry the aubergines after dipping them completely in the batter. Once golden, remove, let sit a few seconds on kitchen paper to drain some of the oil, sprinkle with salt and serve still hot.
This goes great with a simple mayonnaise or a tartar sauce… and some more beer (again, in moderation).
