Fried green tomatoes are a side dish usually found in the Southern United States, made from unripe tomatoes coated with cornmeal and fried (and made famous by a 1991 movie by the same name). Shallow fry the tomatoes as tomatoes do not float in oil.

Serves 4

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ready in: 25 minutes


230g / ½ cup all-purpose flour

  2. 1. Easy recipe: Easy kebabs in spicy sauce
  3. 2. Easy recipe: Sweet cardamom pumpkin in creamy milky sauce
  4. 3. Five natural foods that help reduce stress
  5. 4. Vegan foods rich in proteins that you should know

3 eggs, beaten

230g / ½ cup yellow cornmeal

4-5 large green tomatoes, sliced ½ inch thick

Vegetable oil, for shallow frying

Salt to taste


Place the flour, eggs, and cornmeal in three separate shallow bowls.

Dip the tomatoes first in the flour, then the eggs (letting any excess drip off), and finally in the cornmeal, pressing gently to help it adhere.

Heat the oil in a large deep pan over medium-high heat.

In batches, fry the tomatoes until golden, 1-2 minutes per side.

Transfer onto a platter lined with kitchen paper or serviette.

Season with salt before serving.
