  • 250g pumpkin
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast
  • 4 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • salt & black pepper
  • oil, for frying
  • grated zest of 1/2 lemon


  1. Peel the pumpkin and remove the seeds. Chop the flesh, and boil it in salted water for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente. Drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the yeast with 3 tbsp lukewarm water in a small bowl.
  3. In a medium bowl, mash the pumpkin and add 3 tbsp of the flour, egg, parsley, and the yeast. Season with salt and pepper, then mix well. Cover the bowl and let it stand for 1 hour.
  4. Stir in the remaining 1 tbsp of flour. Add the oil to a deep, heavy pan, to a depth of at least 6cm. Place over a medium-high heat until hot but not smoking.
  5. With two spoons, form small balls of the batter and fry them for a few minutes until golden brown, turning them over to brown them on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately, sprinkled with the lemon zest.
