GLI STRUFFOLI DEL KYRGYSTAN

Me lo ha detto Maria, la bellissima ragazza della foto

Gli Struffoli Napoletani è un dolce tipico del Suo Paese, il Kyrgystan. Si fa una pasta aramatizzandola con limone, si ritaglia a "gnocchetti", che si friggono primain olio poi nel miele, si decorano con arance candite.....
Uguale identico al dolce tipico in Kyrgystan.
Sembra che gli Struffoli siano stati portati nel Sud Italia dai Greci. Chissà, magari i Greci avevano rubato l'idea degli Strufoli nelle loro escursioni.. fuori porta e poi l'hanno portata da noi....
