My father from Thailand just phoned me to tell me they are prepearing special sweets for today….my friend from London wrote me this morning about a kind of pancakes they are making today and so….what about here in Pistoia??
We are making FRITTELLE DI RISO in a very traditional way , as my grandgrandmother did in the past for children & adults as they are really good & light ( yes, though they are fried but, with extra virgin olive oil they are not so heavy) you could eat a full tray!!
The receipe is very simple , as my grandmother Gina used to make “at sight ” : only boiling white rice in milk & some lemon zeist until it is very well cooked ,then add two eggs , a walnut of butter & a bit of sugar , let it getting cold & then..with a spoon take some dough & put it in a pan with a lot of extra virgin olive oil & stir them on a absorbent paper.
Topped with white sugar &….eat them immediately warm !!!
So now … let’s celebrate Carnival in the Tuscan way, with frittelle di riso!!😋😋😋
