Everything is better from a fryer! Especially zucchini, which gets crispy, and eggplant, which turns soft and melting.
Kelkass (Colocasia esculenta) is one of those weird old vegetables that you may not know how to use. Still, its plant is the most gracious ever, with large, light green leaves called elephant ears (if ever someone happens to see the plant!).
Another take on the fatteh is this one, with deep-fried eggplant.
