Frittelle Di Chanukah (Hanukkah Fritters) - Italy
Source:
The Sephardic Table

Recipe Ingredients:

FOR THE FRITTERS:

  • 2 envelopes active dry yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons anise seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup raisins
  • Vegetable oil for frying

FOR THE GLAZE:

  • 1-1/2 cups honey
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice

1. Prepare the fritters: Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water and let stand
until foamy, about 5 minutes. Combine the flour, anise seeds and salt in a large
bowl. Slowly add the yeast mixture and the 2 tablespoons oil. Mix with a wooden
spoon until a dough is formed, then turn out onto a work surface and knead until
the dough is smooth and elastic. Sprinkle the raisins over the dough and knead
them in. Return the dough to a clean bowl, cover with a clean dish towel and let
rise in a warm place until the dough doubles in bulk, about 1 hour.

2. Turn the dough out onto the work surface and flatten it until it is about
1/2-inch thick. Let it rest, uncovered, about 15 minutes. With a sharp knife,
cut it into 36 diamonds.

3. Pour at least 3 inches of oil into a deep pot. Heat the oil to 350 degrees; a
cube of bread tossed in will brown quickly. Fry the diamonds several at a time,
turning so that they are golden on both sides. Remove with a slotted spoon and
drain on paper towels.

4. Prepare the glaze: Heat the honey and lemon juice in a small sauce pan and
boil 3 minutes. Arrange the fritters on a serving plate and drizzle the hot
honey mixture over them. Serve immediately.
