Spinach Balls - Pseftokeftedes Santorini
1 1/4 cup peeled, chopped plum tomatoes or 1 1/2 cups cooked, well-drained,
chopped spinach, or any other greens
1/2 cup finely chopped scallions
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 Tbsp freshly chopped parsley
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp fresh mint (heaping measure)
freshly ground black pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp double-acting baking powder
olive oil, for frying
In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, scallions, garlic, herbs, and
spices. Add flour and baking powder and mix together so that all
ingredients are well blended and have the consistency of a thick
batter (about as thick as pancake batter).
In a large heavy skillet, heat enough olive oil for frying. Taking
a heaping tablespoon at a time, drop batter into hot oil and fry
until golden brown and crisp.
Remove at once with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
