Twice as much smoky eggplant as ground meat gives these classic Turkish fritters a delicate lushness and haunting flavor. Delicious hot or at room temperature, miniature versions make wonderful hors d’oeuvre.
Like albondigas (meatballs), another Judeo-Spanish ground meat favorite, these sautéed meat patties can be prepared with cooked spinach, leeks, celery, mashed potatoes, or carrots standing in for the eggplant.
