Healthy Vegetable, Shimp and Fruit Fritters (Torta)

Today, I will make a non-traditional Pinoy “torta”. The very common torta in the Philippines would be the”Tortang Talong”, which of course uses eggplant as its main ingredient. It is fried with some eggs and optional onions, tomatoes and sometimes with pork. I made this a healthier version since I love vegetables. You will need the following:



Put everything together and fry in cooking Oil. ( I normally use regular Canola oil. The result is this, which I cut using  flower and heart-shaped cookie cutters.


As for the dipping sauce, I will post a picture later. But you need the following:


Kalamansi or Lemon

Chopped white onions

Chilli flakes (optional if you don’t like spicy sauce)

ENJOY!!! 🙂
