Las tortas fritas son una tipica comida Argentina "criolla" para disfrutar en una reunion y tomar mate, son la compañia ideal y tan sabrosas! Siempre se preparan por tradicion los dias de lluvia. Asi que los dias grices y lluviosos de invierno en Argentina se endulzan con "tortas fritas" con "dulce de leche" y "mate"!!

Agua 50 cc
Levadura fresca 20 g

Coloca la harina tamizada en un bol y hacer un hueco en el centro. Colocar el agua, la levadura, la margarina, los huevos y el aceite.

Unir los ingredientes y amasar hasta lograr una masa tierna y suave. Cubrir con un lienzo y dejar reposar por 30 minutos.
3
Estirar la masa de 2 mm de espesor aproximadamente, corta círculos de 7 cm de diámetro, realizar una cruz en los discos con un cuchillo de forma bien profunda para que no se eleven.

so easy!!!!!and so very tasty! you can eat with "Dulce de leche"
Milk jam - This is the most popular and tradicional of all preserve in Argentina. It will found as filling in a majority of all pastries, cakes, sweets and other confectionary products.
Ingredients: Every liter full-cream milk, 300 grams sugar, a vainilla bean to taste, 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda. A tablespoon of honey: the secret.
Preparation: Boil whole milk and sugar with the vainilla bean and the pitch of bicarbonate of soda, over a rather quick fire until milk takes a little color. Continue over a minimum fire, barely simmering, stirring frequently to avoid sticking to the bottom and possibly scorchimg, until thick. Remove from the heat, add a tablespoon of honey and stirring. Save in jars: it keeps for months. No cornstach or potato starch I suggest.
I hope you enjoyed!

  8. Marina, tus tortas fritas se parecen a nuestras sopaipillas, con la diferencia que las tuyas son dulces, y las de acá tienen zapallo y sal. Al parecer tu hija disfruta con su elaboración. Abrazos.
