This is supposed to be potato croquettes but since we are out of potatoes which is so ironic because potatoes are very cheap here, I decided to use eggplant instead. This recipe is best for kids who do not want to eat veggies just like my son Elijah.
Ground pork (optional)
Salt & Pepper
Boil the eggplant in a pot filled with salted water for about 15 minutes. When the eggplant is tender, drain the liquid from the eggplant. Let it cool. Remove it’s skin and mash. In a bowl, combine chopped garlic, onion, tomatoes, ground pork, mashed eggplant, sky flakes and eggs. Put salt and pepper to taste. Shape the mixture into a round shape just like in the picture above.
Heat oil in a skillet. Drop the croquettes one at a time. Deep fry them until golden brown.
I prefer deep frying so they will be cooked evenly inside and out.
