    we found these fritters to be very tasty; it's my husband's new favorite way to eat eggplant. Since we don't have a microwave, we roasted the eggplant at 500*F for 10 minutes. Initially the mixture was tough to handle, but once it came down to room temperature it was easy to handle.

    I served this as a vegetarian main course and it went over rather well. I had no sultana raisins, but regular California raisins worked just fine. I ended up with quite a bit more than 12 fritters and like another reviewer I had some trouble handling the mixture. It's not the greatest eggplant recipe that I've come across, but it is a nice alternative to the more common uses. It definitely hit the spot when I was in the mood for some Middle Eastern fare, and it tastes fantastic with tzatziki.

    Made this as part of a Mezze meal. The soft mixture is a bit difficult at first but I got better at handling it. Nicely spiced!
