  • Clean the artichokes by removing the harder outer leaves, trim and unpeel the stem and cut  the top part of the leaves as they may have thorns. The remaining leaves should be pale green.
  • Wash and drain the artichokes well.
  • Cut each artichoke in half and put in a bowl with cold water to avoid that they turn dark.
  • In a bowl, prepare the pastella (batter) by mixing: flour, eggs, a pinch of salt, garlic, mint, cheese and water.
  • Dip the pieces of artichoke in the pastella and fry in hot oil.
  • Fry them on both sides  until they turn golden.
  • Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.

 Buon Appetito!
