DIRECTIONS

  • Combine flour, egg yolk, wine, water, and salt. Whisk ingredients until they form a thin batter. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  • Open the calyx (the outermost green ring) on each flower and remove the pistils (the little inner stalk). Carefully rinse each flower under cold water and pat dry.
  • Whisk the egg white into small peaks and fold it into the batter.
  • Place a mozzerella stick inside each flower and secure it with a toothpick.
  • Heat 1/2 an inch of oil in a frying pan (on about medium-high, but not too hot).
  • Coat the flowers in the batter and fry them about a minute in oil until they are golden. Drain on paper towels.
