Recipe 23: This is a recipe that it’s quite difficult to realize in UK, just because it’s almost impossible to find the courgettes’ flowers in here. By the way it’s so typical, so good and i wanted to try to do it so much that i wait a week that i was back in Italy to try it. This as well couldn’t miss on my blog!
Ingredients: buy 2-3 courgette’s flower per person. Probably you can find them in spring in Borought Market also if they will be a bit more expensive than in Italy. Then buy 2 mozzarella cheeses, some anchovies under oil, salt, pepper, some flour and olive oil.
Open them a bit, insert the cheese and the anchovies add some salt and pepper and close them as you can. Prepare now the Pastella, a mix of flour and water.
You will need the pastella to cover the flower before to fry them, so i can’t really give you teh quantity of flour and water. Just mix a big quantity and if it’s to liquid you can always add more flour or pass the flower in more flour after (as i did). However thicker it is and more crunchy and crispy are coming the flowers.
Then place them in boiling oil and wait for them to cook, turning them every now and then. When ready and colored, take them off and place them on an absorbing kitchen paper before to serve them still hot!
It will be a success! Buon appetito!
PS. Mamy che te ne pare? alla fine ci sono venuti benino no? Io avrei fatto la pastella piu’ corposa, ma era cosi tanto che no li mangiavo che tra la mozzarella di bufala ed il fatto che in casa rimangono piu’ leggeri, me li sono proprio goduti!
