• 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • saIt to taste
  • 1 package frozen artichokes, defrosted
  • olive oil

Make the batter using the egg, flour, etc. Dip artichokes into batter and fry in about 1/2 inch of olive oil until golden. Drain on paper towels.

 There’s not too much to say about the artichoke recipes.  the stuffed artichoke is different than American recipes in that I add Italian cheese.  For the batter-dipped artichokes, you must use frozen vegetables and the batter is the same as for the cauliflower fritters.

As with all my fried foods, the secret is to keep the oil at the right temperature.  Do not let it get too hot and do not let it cool down.  Keep adding the vegetables or meat as one is removed.  This is important!
