Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 small eggplant, trimmed, halved and thickly sliced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  •   handful of fresh coriander leaves
  • 1  onion
  • 2 medium zucchini ( substitute with eggplants if not available)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1  yellow bell pepper
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions:

Prepare the batter: In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, flour, milk and coriander, salt and pepper to taste, until you obtain smooth paste with no lumps. Place the batter in a cool place until needed.

Place the eggplant in a colander and sprinkle generously with salt. Leave aside for 10  minutes to allow the bitter juices to extract. Rinse well and pat dry on paper towels.

Heat the oven to 400F (205C).

Cut the onion into thin wedges. Slice the zucchini. Seed and quarter the peppers. Roast  all the vegetables ina non-stick pan.. Pour the olive oil on top. Toss with your hands to coat the vegetables with oil.cook for 5…6 minutes till they are  slightly roasted.

Remove from the pan. Give the milky batter enough whisk, then pour it over the vegetables and put in the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the batter is slightly puffed up and golden and the edges are crisp. Remove from the oven. Sprinkle with  cheese (optional) and fresh herbs. Allow to cool slightly. Cut into squares. Use a sturdy spatula to release the squares from the pan as they are rather fragile.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
