I'm sure everyone has their own family recipe for this. My Sicilian grandmother use to make fried dough. She would roll it out fairly thin, cut it into strips, fry it, then sprinkle it with sugar. She called it (I don't know the spelling, I'm sounding it out) - "Foo-watt-zee".
Grandma would always have it ready for us as an after school snack. My favorite memories of her making it was during the winter, when we came into the house after shoving snow.
I would like to know the proper spelling and the meaning of this word. Can anyone help? Thanks!
I'm looking for the accurate name, spelling and hopefully, a recipe, for something my grandmother used to make for us. (She was German, and learned it from her Sicilian mother-in-law.) It was fried dough rolled in sugar. She called it something like WAH-steady.
I have found only two references to "WASTEDDI", which seems to be a Sicilian fried dough treat, but I can find no recipes. It might be similar to Fuazzi (below) except that it was not thin and not in strips. As I vaguely recall, the shapes were somewhat random, but something like a big, puffy kidney bean shape, about the size of an apple fritter.
