Fried artichokes

Method

It is said that artichoke came from Algeria thanks to the Romans who brought it with them from their African and Spanish provinces. Its traces then vanish and it reappeared in Europe after the Arabs reintroduced it in Spain. In Italy, they make a liqueur from its leaves (the famous Cynar), while Greeks prefer to cook it with peas and potatoes, fry it or enjoy it raw with plenty of lemon – a traditional Cretan snack to go with tsikoudia. Artichokes are rich in vitamin C, folic acid, phosphorus, potassium and it also contains antioxidants that protect the heart and your body (beta-carotene, lutein and cannin – that’s why it is bitter).

  • Clean the artichokes. Make sure to leave enough of their heart.
  • Cut the artichokes in 8 pieces and place them in a bowl with water and lemon so that they don’t spoil.
  • In a bowl, mix the flours, salt, pepper, and kefalotyri.
  • Slightly beat the egg and add it to the flour mixture.
  • Mix using a fork until you have a thick mash. If required, add some water.
  • Place sunflower oil in a pan (2 cm deep). Place pan over heat.
  • Dip the artichokes in the mash and sauté them for 3-4 minutes turning them over once.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve warm with garlic mash.

 

Tip

You can use any kind of hard cheese you wish instead of kefalotyri.
