How to prepare salted pumpkin clouds

  1. First, remove the skin and seeds from the pumpkin .
  2. Then grate it and transfer it to a colander by placing a weight on it so that all excess water is released.
  3. Separately, mix the eggs with the milk , flour and yeast.
  4. Season with Parmesan cheese then add the well-squeezed pumpkin .
  5. Season with salt and pepper .
  6. Then heat some seed oil in a saucepan and once the temperature is ready, start frying. To test the temperature of the oil, drop a small amount of batter and check that it comes to the surface quickly.
  7. You can then fry the pumpkin clouds: with the help of two teaspoons, drop some portions of dough that are not too large.
  8. Make them a few at a time and as they are cooked, transfer them to a tray lined with absorbent paper. The pancakes are ready once they are evenly browned.
  9. Serve hot.

Also try the more traditional pumpkin fritters before deciding which is the recipe that best suits your tastes. We haven’t decided yet!

To prepare the sweet pumpkin clouds instead replace the parmesan with sugar and you’re done! You will have an amazing dessert ready to serve by decorating it just with a sprinkling of icing sugar.


Pumpkin clouds, like all fried recipes, are good freshly made. We therefore advise you to eat them at the moment, still hot and steaming.
