Step by step cooking pumpkin pancakes with semolina and orange peel, recipe with photo:
1. Make pumpkin puree. To do this, peel the pumpkin, peel the seeds with fibers and cut it into pieces. For mashed potatoes, boil pumpkin in water on the stove or bake in the oven on a baking sheet. After cooking the pumpkin, grind it until smooth with a blender or pusher and leave to cool to room temperature.
2. Pour semolina to the pumpkin mass.
3. Then add sugar and orange zest. The zest can be either dried or fresh.
4. Add raw egg yolks to the dough and pour the whites into a clean, dry container.
5. Leave the dough for half an hour to swell the semolina. It will increase in volume, and the dough will acquire lightness.
6. Add a pinch of salt to the proteins and beat them with a mixer until stable peaks and a white airy mass are formed.
7. Add a tablespoon of beaten egg whites to the dough.
8. Knead the dough in one direction with slow strokes to prevent the proteins from settling.
9. Pour some vegetable oil into a frying pan and heat it well. Place the dough in the skillet and turn on medium heat.
10. Fry pumpkin pancakes with semolina and orange zest on both sides until golden brown. Frying time takes about 1.5-2 minutes on each side. Serve such pancakes with any toppings.
