Recipe's preparation

    Fritters and Ricotta
  1. RICOTTA - Pour the milk into the jug and set the temperature to

    85 Degrees / Gentle stir setting / 7mins.

    Bring up to temperature.This will take approx 7 minutes using cold milk. You may need to increase the time to reach temperature as this will vary slightly.

    Once the temp reached 85 degrees, with the blades still spinning, add the vinegar and continue on Gentle stir setting for 30 seconds. 

    Pour gently into a sieve and allow to cool. I used muslin lined Varoma to drain the liquid from the ricotta. Set aside to cool.


    FRITTERS- Roughly chop the Zuccini and add to the bowl. Speed 6 for 8 seconds.  Add the cooled ricotta, eggs, flour, parmesan, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Blend on speed 1 for 10 seconds.

    Shallow fry tablespoon amounts of the mixture in vegetable oil in a heavy based frypan until crispy and golden. Transfer to papertowel to cool.

    To Make the Rouille:

    Place the capsicums in the oven for 20 minutes each side.

    Allow to cool slightly and peel.

    Place the roasted capsicum, bread, garlic, lemon juice, tobasco, salt and pepper into the bowl.

    Mix speed 5 for 20 seconds.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl and blend for a further 10 seconds speed 5.


    Serve the fritters with the Rouille on the side.




You can use the Varoma to strain the ricotta from the milk.  The reserved liquid from the ricotta cheese can be used for making cakes.

An easy way to peel the capsicums when they are cooked pop them into a paper bag or wrap them in paper towel then into a zip lock bag for 20 minutes. The skin will just fall off.

When buying the Zuccini buy the small ones as these have less liquid in them. If you cannot get small ones thats ok once you chop the Zuccini just squeeze some liquid away with your hands as you want the mixture to be like pancake batter consistency and not too runny.
