Tomato fritters are a delightful appetizer or side dish, and a specialty of Santorini, a Greek island known for its tomatoes. The combination of herbs can be adjusted to include dill, parsley, basil, mint, or oregano, depending on taste preference. This recipe for domatokeftethes (in Greek: ντοματοκεφτέδες, pronounced doh-mah-to-kef-TEH-thes ) calls for self-rising flour.
4 medium tomatoes, ripe, finely chopped
2 medium zucchini, grated
1 medium onion, grated
1 1/2 to 2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped
1/2 bunch fresh mint, or fresh basil, finely chopped
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 inch sunflower oil, or canola oil, for frying
Combine all ingredients except flour in a bowl. Add enough flour to make a thick batter.
Heat 1/2 to 3/4 inch of oil in a nonstick frying pan. When the oil is hot, drop the batter by tablespoonfuls into the oil and fry until browned. Turn once to brown on both sides.
Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on absorbent paper towels.
