Aubergine balls

2 kilos of aubergines, 2 eggs, 1 cup of crushed rusk bread, 1 spoonful of oregano, 2 spoonfuls of mint, 1 spoonful of salt, 1/2 spoonful of pepper, 5 cloves of garlic, some vinegar, 1 cup of olive oil from Mytilene.

Bake the aubergines and put them through blender. Put the mixture into a bowl together with the crushed rusk bread and add the rest of the ingredients after they are put through blender as well. If the mixture is not thick enough add some more crushed rusk bread to it. Mould into small balls and coat them with flour. Fry them into hot oil and serve with wine or ouzo from Mytilene.
