Directions

  1. Place ricotta in a sieve over a medium bowl, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to allow excess moisture to drain from ricotta.

  4. Preheat oven to 160 degree celsius.
  5. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
  6. Using 1 heaped tablespoon of mixture per fritter, cook fritters in batches of 4, turning often with a metal spoon, for 3 minutes or until golden.
  7. Transfer to a wire rack over a baking tray, keep warm in oven while cooking the remaining fritters.
  8. Place fritters on a plate, sprinkle with remaining parmesan, season with salt and pepper. Serve.
