Talumba – Fried Pastry with Syrup



2 tablespoons melted margarine
1 glass flour
3 tablespoons water
4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 glasses olive oil
Syrup: 2 glasses sugar
1 3/4 glasses water
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Cooking Instructions:

Put the sugar, water and lemon juice into a saucepan, melting the sugar by stirring. Allow it to boil until moderately thick. Set aside to cool.

Heat the margarine in a saucepan, add the water and salt and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and add the flour all at once. Stir the mixture constantly with a wooden spool and continue until mixture leaves the sides of the pan and forms a ball. This should take 6 minutes, then remove pan from heat and set aside to cool. After coolin add the eggs and knead for approximately 10 minutes. Using a pastry bag with a large nozzle put 7-8 pastries in a pan containing the heated olive oil. Start frying the pastry over low heat, increase heat when pastry puffs up a bit and fry until golden. Remove fried pastry with a perforated spoon, draining away the oil, then put into the syrup. Strain off the syrup, place Tulumba on serving plate and serve cool.
