My Daughter's Favorite Tortang Talong (Eggplant Omelette)

It's Araw ng Kalayaan or the Philippine Independence Day, so I am posting this Filipino food as my simple way of paying tribute to the heroes who helped save this country from invasion and tyranny. As stated in the title, this is my daughter's all-time favorite native dish. She would eat a lot if there's tortang talong for lunch or dinner, accompanied with chicken soup and steamed rice.

This is a no meat omelette but I consider it special because of its yummy taste.

In fact, my daughter is not the only one who loves this dish. Hubby likes it a lot, too.

I cooked this dish while we were in Turkey and it became an instant hit. Check my recipe below.

3 medium eggplant
5 stalks of green onion
2 small eggs
1 tbsp evaporated milk
cooking oil

Cooking Procedure:
-Grill the eggplant until cooked. Let them cool, peel the skin off, then set aside.
-Mix the eggs and evaporated milk in a bowl.
-Cut the green onions finely and add to the egg mixture. Season with salt according to taste.
-Heat the oil in a pan.
-Flatten the grilled eggplant with the use of a fork.
-Dip the eggplant to the egg mixture before frying.
-While in the pan, add a spoonful of egg mixture on each eggplant, coating the flesh well.
-Cook for 3 minutes each side or until golden brown.
-Serve with ketchup.


  1. One of my favorite viands as well! I like mine with diced carrots and spring onions. I have never tried cooking it with a bit of milk though, will make sure to try that next time I cook tortang talong. Thanks sis!

  2. interesting yung milk, thanks for sharing :)

  3. I like it with some cheese on. Hope I can introduce this to my daughter soon. :)

  4. I don't eat tortang talong. hehe but my mother says i should practice eating it because aside from its delicious "daw" its also nutritious.

  5. I like tortang talong too although I used to not like eggplant in general. Anyway, I'll try your recipe with evap. I think it'd be creamier and tastier this way :D

  6. Ein sehr schönes Rezept. Das werde ich in den nächsten Tagen auch mal für meine Familie kochen. bin gespannt, ob und wie es schmecken wird.


Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day!
