The FÖIES DA SONI
are potato sheet, a classic of the Ladin cusine
Ingredients for 4 persons:
- 600 g floury potatoes
- 2 egg yolks
- 50 g melted butter
- 200 g flour
- 1 tablespoon of anise or cumin
- oil to fry
Peel the potatoes, cut into cubes and cook in boiling salted water. When potatoes are cooked, pass them with a potato masher and let them cool.
After the potatoes have cooled, add egg yolks, melted butter, flour, spices and a pinch of salt, then work the dough until you get a homogeneous mass.
Roll out the dough with a rolling pin into a sheet of ca. 5 mm and cut out the potato sheets in the preferred form, usually rectangular or round, the size of a palm, and let them rest on a towel.
Fry the potato sheets in hot oil turning them occasionally until the color gets golden brown.
Place them on paper towels to absorb excess oil.
Potato sheets are usually served with cooked sauerkraut, or alternatively with cranberry jam.
