Eggplant Hush Puppies
|Eggplants||2 Large, peeled and cubed|
|Yellow cornmeal||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Whole wheat flour||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Baking powder||1 1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Salt||1 1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Grated onion||2 Tablespoon, or finely chopped|
|Oil||2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Deep Frying)|
1. Put the eggplant cubes into a colander and steam, covered, over boiling water until tender, about 25 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, combine the corn-meal, flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Push the eggplant through the colander into the bowl in small amounts, mixing in enough eggplant to make a medium-stiff dough.
3. Stir in the onion. Set the mixture aside for 15 to 30 minutes.
4. Drop the mixture by teaspoons into deep oil heated to 365 degrees and fry until golden. Drain on paper towels.
