FRIED CHEESE RAVIOLI


Usually fresh ravioli is served with marinara sauce after cooked in a boiling water. This time I'm making them in crispy texture and sprinkle with some fresh grated Parmesan and good quality of marinara sauce.

The result to the outcomes was delicious and it's the best appetizer. Hereby is the recipe I would like to share;



INGREDIENTS :

Olive oil, for frying
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups Italian-style bread crumbs
1 box store-brought cheese ravioli
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 jar store brought marinara sauce, heated, for dipping


METHODS :

1. Pour enough olive oil into a large frying pan to reach a depth of 2 inches. Heat the oil over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer register 325 degree F.

2. While the oil is heating, put the buttermilk and the bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls. Working in batches, dip ravioli in buttermilk to coat completely. Allow the excess buttermilk to drip back into the bowl. Dredge ravioli in the bread crumbs. Place the ravioli on a baking sheet and continue with the remaining ravioli.

3. When the oil is hot, fry the ravioli in batches, turning occasionally, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fried ravioli to paper towels to drain.

4. Sprinkle the fried ravioli with freshly grated Parmesan and serve with a bowl of warmed marinara sauce for dipping.
