carnival fried sweeties (castagnole)

Here is the video recipe I presented on TG5 Gusto 

I found out this recipe with a little variation in the ingredients, the ricotta cheese.

Ingredients for 6 persons                                

  • 250 g flour 00
  • 75 g cottage cheese (ricotta)
  • 35 g butter
  • 200 g caster sugar
  • 7.5 g baking powder
  • 100 g of eggs (2 eggs)
  • 2.5 g of salt
  • oil for frying
  • powdered sugar for garnish

1. Sift the flour on a work plan and put in the center ricotta, butter, 25 grams of sugar, salt, yeast, eggs. Knead until it forms a ball, let the dough rest 15-20 minutes, covered with a cloth.

2. Roll out to a thickness of about 2.5 cm on a sheet of parchment paper cut to 2.5 cm wide strips and then cubes of 2.5 cm. Let rest another 15 min. always covered. Heat plenty of oil for frying to a temperature of 160°, fry the diced draining pasta a little at a time till they become golden.

Roll them in the remained caster sugar.
