Eggplant Fritters With Orange Ginger Salsa #SundaySupper


Tender baby eggplant fritters coated with lentil flour served with a tangy fresh orange ginger salsa makes a high fiber snack and a great appetizer. It’s Super bowl Sunday and my Sunday Supper team is doing a tailgating Super Bowl theme. In all the 17 years I have been here in the Sates, I have watched the Super Bowl with great excitement every year. The ads, the games, the entertainment and the snacks are all a part of Super Bowl. This year I was really excited to see the Washington Redskins come quite close J  but they since they did not make it to the finals, I will be rooting for the Baltimore Ravens!! Every year we have a Super Bowl party with friends and this year along with my home-made hummus I will be taking my eggplant fritters with a zesty orange salsa.  These eggplant fritters are super easy to make and can be eaten plain or with a sauce or dip. You slice the eggplant, dip it in a chickpeas batter and fry it in peanut oil or a healthy oil of your choice. I have tried baking the fritters, but it’s not the same so this is one of those occasions when frying becomes acceptable. Draining the fritters on paper towels as soon as you make them drains and removes most of the oil. The lentil batter adds a nice crunch and a healthy dose of fiber to the fritter. If you’re an eggplant lover you must try this dish. It is yummy crunchy and will change the way you eat eggplant.



Nutrition Wise!

The elusive eggplant is a favorite of mine. Eggplants are bursting with phytonutrients that act as antioxidants that help to reduce the number of free radicals in the body which damage cells and may contribute to certain diseases, including some cancers and heart diseases. Eggplants are also a good source of dietary fiber, which can help improve cardiovascular and digestive health. Lentil flour adds a nice dose of fiber and protein and curicumin aka turmeric add some antioxidant power.
