Ingredients for curd balls

Cooking

1. We take cottage cheese not too wet, but rather dryish. We send it to a bowl, grind the curd lumps in it. If there is time and desire, then you can grind the cottage cheese through a sieve, but this is a laborious work that will take some time. If you need to quickly cook curd balls, then it is enough to grind the cottage cheese with a spoon. You can’t crush all the lumps with a spoon, but this will not spoil the taste of curd balls.

10. While the dough is resting, we decide on the dishes in which we will fry the curd balls. Since our balls should float in oil during frying, it is better to take a small and deep dish. It is convenient to use a small cauldron for this. It is ideal for this purpose. It will be convenient to mix our curd balls in it, without the risk of splattering everything around with grease. Pour refined sunflower oil into it. We heat the oil well in a cauldron, as for frying pies.

11. While the oil is heating, we form balls from the curd dough. The dough is sticky, so dip your hands in flour while forming donuts-balls. Roll into balls the size of a walnut.

12. Gently lower the donut blanks into the heated fat. As mentioned earlier, donuts should float freely in fat. Therefore, there must be free space between them. Turn the curd balls regularly with a spatula so that they fry evenly.
