Sweet curd balls

Hi there and welcome :) So this recipe is not anything new or special that I invented, it’s a largely used recipe from where I come from. But I want to share it with you, cause it’s very cheap & yummy and otherwise you wouldn’t know to search for it, I’m sure it wouldn’t come up in “cheap sweets” if you did a google or pinterest search.

Once again, not the best photos. I made those for my husband to show him what I was doing. I always send him photos of food while he’s at work :P


250-300g of curd or ricotta

2 eggs

3 tbsp of sugar (depends on your preference)

Around 7 tbsp of flour (depends on the size on your eggs)

1 tsp of baking powder

just a pinch of salt

Optional: lemon zest or juice

Oil for cooking

  • Beat the eggs with sugar
  • Mix in the curd/ricotta, then salt and baking powder
  • Start mixing in the flour, until it’s a nice thick consistency
  • Heat up the oil (use an oil that doesn’t have a strong taste). To test the oil put in a tiny piece of dough and if it starts to form little bubbles right away then it’s ready
  • To form the balls, use two spoons. Take some dough on one spoon and scrape it into the oil with another one. You can definitely do a better job than me, cause I just don’t care as long as it tastes good :P
  • Prepare a plate with some paper towels to absorb the oil and remove the balls wih a slotted spoon/skimmer spoon.
  • Sprinkle on some powdered sugar before serving and there you go

Enjoy your creation – bon apetit! As always I hope this post was useful and definitely let me know if you try these out :) Until next time lovely people.
