Fried Green Tomatoes
5-6 Green Tomatoes, cut into discs
Oil, for deep frying
1 cup Gram Flour
1/2 cup Rice Flour
A pinch of Asafoetida
A pinch of Salt
A pinch of Red Chilli Powder
Water, enough to make a batter.
First heat the oil in a deep pan. Make a batter with all the batter ingredients.
Dip the tomato slices in the batter until thinly coated. Slowly lower a few at a time into the hot oil. Flip after a minute, and fry until cooked through. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper-towel lined plate. Repeat until you've fried all the tomatoes.
Serve hot with ketchup or a spicy chutney.
