    For perfect frying
    it is important to respect some basic rules:

    • Do not exceed the smoke point of the oil you are using
    • Fry the dough only when the oil is very hot to prevent the pancakes from getting soaked in oil
    • Maintain constant heat
    • Fry a few pancakes at a time to prevent the oil temperature from dropping excessively
    • Use a food thermometer to constantly monitor the temperature
    • Use an oil with a high smoke point (e.g. extra virgin olive oil or peanut oil) to prevent the formation of aromatic compounds that are toxic to health
    1. When the oil is hot, proceed with the preparation of the pancakes. With the help of a couple of teaspoons, take a small portion of dough at a time and drop it into the boiling oil: after about a minute, turn the pancake to cook it on the other side.
    2. As the pancakes are ready (2-3 minutes), remove them from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain them on a sheet of absorbent paper to remove excess oil.
    3. Serve immediately, sprinkling with bitter cocoa or powdered sugar as desired.
