Makes 10 fritters
These fried tortitas are served with a light tomato sauce. The acidity of the tomato balances the fat from frying. They can also be served with a fruit puree instead of the tomato sauce. This recipe is from Maria Eugenia Valdes Villarreal.
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 2 small onions, minced
- 5 tablespoons chopped parsley
- 4 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- For Sauce:
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 pound of tomatoes, quartered and seeded
- 1 onion, minced
- 1/2 bay leaf
- 1/2 sprig fresh thyme
- 1 sprig fresh parsley
In a bowl, mix the oats, onions, parsley, eggs and salt thoroughly. Let rest for 5 minutes.
FOR SAUCE: Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a medium frying pan. Blend the tomato and onion in a blender and strain on top of the hot oil. Add the herbs and cook over high heat until the fat rises to the surface, about 8 minutes. Remove the herbs and set the pan aside.
Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a seperate medium frying pan. Put 1 rounded tablespoon of the oat mixture at a time into the pan and flatten with a spatula. Cook, turning once, over medium heat until golden.
Place the fritters in the tomato sauce and cook over very low heat for approximately 10 minutes, turning once. Serve.
