First, I state that I have the grater tortel, but a grater with large holes is fine, look at the photo and you will understand. The potatoes are washed and peeled, and then put in a bowl covered with cold water to prevent them from oxidizing. In a large bowl begin to grate, over this operation must be drained, better if you have a fine mesh strainer. We place the potatoes in reduced pulp in the bowl and add flour, grated cheese salt and beer. Mix well with the help of a wooden spoon. We need to get a batter soft and heavy. Batter, to understand if you want to make a ball, you should not do it.
In a large frying pan we heat the oil for frying, must be high and hot, 180 °. We can do the test and to drop a piece of potato, if sbollicina now it's time to fry the tortei. With a ladle, we take a portion of dough from the bowl, pour it into the hot oil and the back of the spoon (the round part) flatten to form the tortel (see photo) we make another one immediately and let brown and then toss and turn them on the other side, always up to desired color. If you have a nice big pan, I can put together to fry until there are, the important thing is that they do not touch. Once they are golden and cooked, we can place them on paper towels to remove excess oil. Continuing to cook the rest of the dough. Now, if you do it many, many, as happens to me when I do it for so many people, once passed you can put them on absorbent paper in a baking dish and keep them warm in the oven on the 80th, so once finished, eat together but above all you will have the opportunity to find more! The tortei must be with the crust crispy outside and soft inside. As per tradition, I will serve with cabbage and beans in salads, mixed cheeses, pickles, salted meat and cold cuts.
A good meal, I assure you. Always a hit, I've never known anyone not satisfied by tortel. Starting from raw potatoes and short cooking, the flavor is really different, once in your life, even if you do not live here, you have to try them. So, you have done your shopping list? Just eaten and I still want
