METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the eggplant into thick coins and season generously with salt. Prepare your three dipping pans – one with flour, second with whisked eggs and milk and third with mixed cheese, breadcrumbs and black pepper. Coat each eggplant piece into flour, egg mix and breadcrumb mix. Place the coated eggplant on a prepared baking sheet and repeat until all of the eggplant coins are used up.

Lightly brush each coated eggplant fritter with oil on each side and bake for 45 minutes, until golden and crispy to your liking. Once the fritters are done, you can top them with slices of cheese and bake for additional 2 minutes, just until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve immediately with some sour cream or other preferred dipping paraphernalia.

Ako vam se svidio moj raniji recept za pohance od tikvica, obavezno onda isprobajte i ovu verziju sa patlidžanom koja je skoro pa i ukusnija. Čak i ako niste neki ljubitelj patlidžana, dajte ovom jelu šansu pa se možda i preobratite. I požurite sa kuhanjem dok nam je sezona patlidžana još uvijek u punom jeku.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,25 kn po porciji / 21,01 kn za sve)

3 mala patlidžana (6,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,00 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

¼ šalice mlijeka (0,50 kn)

1 šalica fino ribanog Grana Padano sira (5,00 kn)

1 šalica krušnih mrvica (1,50 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

¼ šalice suncokretovog ulja (0,75 kn)

Dodatno po želji:

Nekoliko šnita sira (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Protvan obložite papirom za pečenje. Patlidžane narežite na deblje novčiće i dobro posolite. Pripremite si tri posude za umakanje – prvu sa brašnom, drugu sa pomiješanim jajima i mlijekom, te treću sa miksom sira, krušnih mrvica i papra. Svaku plošku patlidžana obložite prvo brašnom, onda jajem i na kraju mrvicama. Slažite panirane patlidžane na pripremljeni protvan i ponavljajte postupak dok ih sve ne potrošite.

Panirane patlidžane lagano premažite sa obje strane sa malo ulja i pecite 45 minuta dok ne budu zlatno-smeđi i hrskavi po vašem ukusu. Kada su pohanci gotovi, možete na svakog staviti još po šniticu sira i zapeći još dvije minute, samo koliko treba siru da se rastopi. Poslužite odmah sa malo kiselog vrhnja, ajvara ili kojeg god drugog umaka po vašem izboru.
