Green Fried Tomato Recipes
Even though Green Fried Tomatoes is not a traditional "Jewish Dish" -- Green Fried Tomatoes can be a Kosher Recipe.

Fried Green Tomatoes are a southern American side dish made of un-ripened (green) tomatoes coated with meal and deep fried.

The tomatoes are usually cut into 1/4 inch slices and coated with cornmeal, breadcrumbs, or flour, then fried in hot oil or grease for about 3 minutes on each side until the bottoms are browned. Alternatively, one can dip the tomatoes into beaten eggs before coating with meal for a firmer product.

The traditional recipe consists of green tomatoes sliced thinly and coated in plain coarse cornmeal. The tomatoes are then pan fried in oil. Fill the pan with vegetable oil to a depth slightly shallower than the thickness of your slices. This keeps the tomatoes from floating and thus allows gravity to hold the cornmeal to the bottom side. As a true art you must then carefully "splash" oil onto the top to allow it to firm up also. The reason for all this is that cornmeal without a "wash" like eggs tends to fall off in the oil, however with a wash the meal becomes thick and not nearly as crunchy. It is more trouble to go without a wash, but itís worth it. Flip the tomatoes after a minute or so, depending on oil temperature. Cook to a golden brown and season with salt and pepper.
