How to prepare the real Italian recipe of “Friciò”

Everyone loves this delicious sweet pastry from Piedmont region, north of Italy: The Friciò. It is simply a Carnival Fritters variation with raisins. Tasty and sweet dough-balls very similar to Castagnole typical of Marche region, but with added Raisins. Like many Carnival Italian Recipes this is as much delicious as much a calories bomb, but definitely worth to try! Diet another day…
