A very easy recipe for fluffy fried balls – perfect for breakfast and not only. I serve them with cheese or marmalade/honey. My advice is to choose a deep frying pan in which to pour a large amount of oil (3 cm from the bottom). During frying, the balls turn upside alone. Still, if they are mulish … help them with a slotted spoon.


1 egg

3 egg whites

1 cup Greek yoghurt

1 and ½ cup flour

1 teaspoon soda

sunflower oil for frying (be ready with more)


Mix all products by hand; no mixer is required. The dough is semi-liquid and tough.

Using a hollow ice cream scoop, I scoop the mixture, pour it very carefully into the heavily boiled vegetable oil. I try to pour at one point to make balls as smooth as possible, not shaggy.

Fry briefly on both sides. I take them out with a large slotted spoon on a paper towel that will absorb the excess fat.
