I said I wanted to add more veggies in my life. I saw tortang talong in our office cafeteria and thought to myself, easy. I asked my husband if he’d like for us to try this and he said yes, lol. I honestly thought it was easy and straightforward but I underestimated this dish or was I just overconfident?
So please, let’s go over what I did and comment on what I should or shouldn’t have done!
Okay, the obvious. I obviously used too much meat and eggs. The end result looked as if the eggplant was a topping rather than it being the star of the show. It also somehow looked like an omelet pancake! I don’t know if that’s a thing but that’s what it looked like.
I also think I shouldn’t have placed everything in a bowl and then fry it. I saw my friend make her torta by mixing the eggs separately, proceeding to fry it until it was half cooked, and then putting her cooked meat after. I’m not sure if tortang talong should have been cooked like that. (You know I could easily Google this but since my tinola post I’ve found that asking my readers is a better option since they really give you real-life experiences/tips. Plus I got this recipe from the internet so I need real people advice!)
Anyway, it might not have been a 5/5 recipe but it was still pretty decent. I was still able to eat some veggies and identify a room for improvement in my cooking skills. 🙂
