How to make Carnival Arancini
First of all mix together the flour, sugar and dry yeast. If you are using the fresh one, dissolve 1 teaspoon of water.
Then add the milk, stir, then the egg. Finally, stir in the soft butter in small pieces. Knead by ironing the dough well. When it is smooth, add the salt, knead well again in order to obtain a homogeneous and elastic mixture.
Finally cover with cling film and let it rise for 3 – 5 hours, the time it triples its volume in a temperate environment at about 28 °.
Then turn the dough over on a work surface, roll it out with a rolling pin to a thickness of about 6 mm, forming a rectangle. Then add the sugar and the grated peel of the oranges:
Finally roll up starting from the wide part:
until you get a sausage. Use a double cotton thread to cross and form the swivel by cutting it directly to 1 cm of dough:
As you make them, arrange them in a baking tray previously lined with baking paper.
Finally let it rise for another 40 minutes at 28 °
At this point you can fry in plenty of oil, directly cutting the square with the swivel and immersing it in boiling oil for about 2 minutes, it will come off a few seconds after immersion.
Or you can bake in a static oven, as in my case, at 180 degrees for about 18 minutes until golden brown!
