Tortang Talong Filipino (eggplant recipe)

Dave Smith


Here is a unique eggplant recipe from the Filipino cuisine. Filipino chef Panlasang Pinoy shows an eggplant dish with pork and raisins. The combination of ingredients brings out a delicious looking dish. The recipe is bit long with a lot of cooking steps but it’s all worth. A more simple Tortang talong or Eggplant Omelet is just roast the eggplant clear burn skin flour and dip in the egg wash fry for those who are always in a hurry. A very budget friendly meal, this recipe won’t hurt your wallet at all.I would recommend this to beginners because it only takes few easy steps.
