This is a delicious and easy-to-make Greek summer snack. This is a speciality from the island of Santorini and is especially tasty with Santorini tomatoes. However, I imagine it may be difficult to obtain them if living outside Greece, but the quality of the tomato definitely makes a difference to the taste. You can eat these as a side dish or a meze and are especially delightful with tzatziki and Greek salad.
1 ½ kg ripe tomatoes
1 large onion finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped mint
Oil for frying
Salt and pepper to taste
Remove the skin, seeds and liquid from the tomatoes and finely chop them.
Place them in a colander and drain any remaining liquid.
Put them in a bowl and add the onion, mint, salt and pepper and mix well.
Add the flour – the mixture above should be approx 800g, for which 300g flour is enough, but if it should be more than 800g, you can add a bit more flour. Mix well.
Heat the oil in a frying pan and then add spoonfuls of the mixture to fry. When one side is done, turn over.
Remove and place on absorbent kitchen paper to drain.
Eat and Enjoy!
