Ingredients of Panelle e Cazzilli (4 servings):
-300 gm chickpeas flour.
-1 cup virgin olive oil.
-Salt as required.
-100 gm bread crumbs.
-Black pepper as required.
-350 gm potato.
-1 tablespoon parsley.
-100 gm parmesan cheese.
-100 gm all-purpose flour.
-1 gm nutmeg.

How to make Panelle e Cazzilli:

1) Prepare the Panelle.
To prepare the Panelle, prepare a chickpea dough by adding water with a pinch of salt to the chickpea flour and kneading a soft, lump-free dough. You would know the dough is ready when it comes off the bowl on its own.

2) Spread the dough on a tray and cut it into rectangles.
Meanwhile, oil a tray and pour the soft dough on the tray. It will spread and the thickness should be around 1.5 cms after it spreads. Let it rest and cut in rectangles after it 5 minutes.

3) Deep fry the Panelle and season with some salt and pepper.
Heat the olive oil for deep frying and fry the Panelle. Keep them aside and sprinkle some salt and pepper with a few drops of lemon juice.

4) Prepare the Cazzilli.
To prepare the Cazzilli, boil and peel the potatoes. Mash them with a potato masher and add in the parmesan with the bread crumbs. Now, add the nutmeg powder with salt and pepper and give it a good mix.

5) Prepare a flour and water mix to fry the Cazzilli.
Prepare a thin flour and water mixture to dip in the Cazzilli before frying and some bread crumbs with some parmesan cheese on another plate.

6) Create croquettes and fry them.
Create cylindrical croquettes with the potato mash mix and coat them in the flour-water mix and then in the bread crumbs mix and into the hot oil for frying. Fry and serve hot!
