Tortang ala Rellenong Talong

I was going to make Rellenong Talong (stuff eggplant) but the eggplants I bought are kinda little so it end up to tortang talong and stuffing is a just a bonus. It turned out really good and tasty. Even the kids loved it. First steam or grill eggplant till soft. Let it cool, peel the skin and set aside.
For stuffing:
2 lbs. ground chicken
1 small onion, chopped fine
1 teaspoon garlic, crushed
1 small potato, cut small cubes
1 small red bell pepper, cut small cubes
2 pieces egg, beaten
1 tablespoon flour
salt and ground pepper to taste

Saute garlic and onion. Add ground chicken till golden brown. Season with a dash of salt and pepper. Add potatoes and bell pepper. Remove from heat and let it cool.
On a bowl beat eggs, add flour and the sauteed ground chicken. Set aside.
Frying:
On a separate bowl beat 2 eggs and sprinkle a little salt. Flatten eggplant one by one on the egg.
Pour canola oil in the frying pan. Place eggplant dipped in egg in oil follow by 2 tablespoon of ground chicken stuffing on top of the eggplant. While frying scoop 1 teaspoon of beaten egg and cover the top of the ground chicken stuffing. Couple of minutes after flip the eggplant and fry for few minutes. Remove from heat.

Best when served with banana catsup.
