The preparation of fried artichokes

  1. Start the preparation by cleaning the artichokes: remove the outer leaves and the tips of the artichokes then cut them into wedges and put them in a bowl of cold water with the lemon juice to prevent them from oxidizing. After a couple of minutes, drain the artichokes and dry them with a clean kitchen towel.
  2. In the meantime prepare the beaten eggs and the flour in two different bowls. Take the artichokes, pass them in the flour, then in the egg.
  3. Fry the artichokes in boiling oil, then after a few minutes lift them with a slotted spoon , drain the excess oil and serve piping hot.

You can also try your hand at preparing the batter and dip the artichokes in it before frying them. In this case you will have to prepare a batter by combining 150 grams of flour, 300 of water and a pinch of salt. For the version with egg (one will be enough), reduce the amount of water, using 200 grams.
