Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, perfect with a fresh yogurt sauce, for an aperitif on the terrace on a hot summer’s day!
These are the Red lentil couscous fritters, a quick, tasty and delicious idea to try our lentil couscous in another guise!
The recipe is by our Francesca Lucisano, foodblogger at Giallo Zafferano.
Ingredients for 4 people
- 200 g of red lentil couscous;
- 400 ml lukewarm water;
- 100 g of 00 flour;
- 50 g of grated Parmesan cheese;
- Water to taste
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Sunflower oil for frying to taste
Pour the red lentil couscous into a bowl and moisten with warm water. Let it stand for 10 minutes, then fluff it up with a fork. Add salt, pepper, flour and grated cheese.
Mix everything together with a spoon and, if necessary, add enough water to make the mixture thick and fluid enough. Pour the seed oil into a frying pan and bring to temperature.
As soon as the oil is hot, fry the fritters in spoonfuls until golden brown on both sides. Remove them from the oil with a slotted spoon and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to remove excess oil. Serve the red lentil couscous fritters at the table.
