HOT & JUICY~ FRIED GREEN TOMATOES

The other day I came across some green tomatoes at the farmer's market and bought them with Fried green tomatoes on my mind, trying to imagine what they would taste like but not really getting it, when I did make them however I was pleasantly surprised, they were just what my tastebuds crave- sour and deliciously crispy, they really looked like tikkis or cutlets and no one could make out by just looking that there is a hot and juicy tomato slice inside!

They are incredibly simple and with very few ingredients, yet they are fun and tangy, you can bread them ahead of time and keep in the fridge, even a day before, I even took them to work for breakfast with scrambled eggs and toast and they were very good!, here's what all you need to make them-



  • Fresh green tomatoes-4

  • Egg-1

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

  • Fresh or dried breadcrumbs-1 cup

  • Refined oil for frying


Wash the tomatoes and dry, chose very firm unblemished tomatoes, slice 1/2 inch thick and pat them with paper towel to soak excess liquid, crack open egg and beat well with salt and pepper.For the fresh breadcrumbs I simply take 3 slices of brown bread and pulse in my coffee grinder, ta-da fresh breadcrumbs are ready!.Season breadcrumbs with salt and pepper too, if like me you like it hot, sprinkle some chilli flakes in too :), now take the tomato slice and dip in egg, coat well with the crumbs and press down gently so that they stick well, shallow fry in a non-stick pan till golden and crispy, serve immediately.
