Las navidades malagueñas serían unas fiestas incompletas sin la presencia de los borrachuelos en la mesa. Se consumen tanto fuera como dentro de casa, en reuniones familiares al calor del aguardiente.
THE TASTY CONTRAST
There’s a lot of chemistry between aubergines and molasses. Vouching for this are the exquisite types of molasses that have always been around. The sugar mill that made history industry-wide in southern Malaga provides an ingredient which complements fried aubergines in a very special way. Fried and sweet, this vegetable gets an extraordinary rich flavour with hints of the Orient (Arab or Indian, depending on the source).
Contrasts usually are quite interesting. The case of this culinary idea, which is absolutely divine as a snack, is by all means no exception. Crunchy yet soft, these aubergines which some refer to as “fritters” -or the tempura version thanks to culinary globalization- are decisive proof that vegetables are not at all boring.
