 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/4 c Peeled, chopped plum tomato
  • -(See Note)
  • 1/2 c Finely chopped scallions
  • 1 Garlic clove; finely chopped
  • 1 tb Freshly chopped parsley
  • 1/2 ts Oregano
  • 1/4 ts Cinnamon
  • 1 ts Fresh mint (heaping measure)
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 ts Double-acting baking powder
  • Olive oil; for frying


In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, scallions, garlic, herbs, and spices.
Add flour and baking powder and mix together so that all ingredients are
well blended and have the consistency of a thick batter (about as thick as
pancake batter).

In a large heavy skillet, heat enough olive oil for frying. Taking a
heaping tablespoon at a time, drop batter into hot oil and fry until golden
brown and crisp.

Remove at once with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Serve hot.

Yield: about 3 dozen

NOTE: In other islands, spinach or 'horta' (greens) are often used instead
of tomatoes. Follow instructions above, using 1-1/2 cups boiled,
well-drained, chopped spinach, or any other greens.
