We were eating this meal for the first time in Rethymno in one of the humble family taverns outside the main tourist trail. We were surprised by the slightly different taste of breadcrumbs that we wanted to recreate in our kitchen. As we have managed to establish with the friendly Greeks, it is the addition of beer that is responsible for this characteristic taste. However, apart from all the qualities and the modest appearance of this dish, one can not forget that it is very caloric. For this reason, such prepared courgettes or eggplants are only suitable as an addition to the main dish. They taste very well in combination with tzatziki or simply Greek yogurt.
1. Wash courgettes and cut into thin and thin slices. We will sprinkle them with salt and leave for a few minutes.
2. At this time, we prepare crumbs. We mix all the ingredients starting with whipping the protein into a loose foam. The finished dough should have a texture reminiscent of pancake dough. It is worth mentioning that this coating is quite versatile and is also suitable for wrapping fish and other vegetables. After frying it is golden and crispy.
3. Dry courgettes with a paper towel, and then immerse it in the previously prepared dough.
4. Fry each piece of zucchini on both sides in hot oil to obtain a golden color. Place fried pieces of zucchini on paper towels to drain them from excess fat.
Fava is a popular appetizer in Greece somewhat similar to hummus, but unlike it, it is made from yellow-skinned peas. Fava is easy to prepare and can be served both hot and cold, for example with pita bread.
Kalitsounia is a quite labor-intensive dish similar to the dumplings. Like them, they can contain various types of filling, both in the salty and sweet versions. However, in contrast to the calitsounia dumplings, they are deeply fried in deep oil or baked in the oven.
Feta from the oven is a great way for a quick and very tasty dish that will appeal to fry-eaters and lovers of Greek cuisine. The absolute condition of success is the use of the original Greek fete and not the Polish substitute, which has nothing to do with real feta. As with other dishes, there are several ways to prepare feta from the oven. If the dish is to fulfill the task of a snack, we only need one feta packet for 2 people.
