Roast the eggplants, either in the oven or over gas flame (latter is preferable) until the outside skin is charred.

Peel off the skin and mash the flesh with a fork.

Make sure to keep the whole thing as intact as possible.

In a skillet, fry the onion until translucent and remove.

To prepare one torta, beat an egg in a bowl, then dip the eggplant.

Hold the whole thing by the stem and don't dip that part in the egg.

Add salt and pepper as you like, and if you really want to.

add finely chopped cilantro or kinchay to the egg mixture.

Heat oil in a frying pan, then when the oil is hot.
