  • oil (for frying).


  1. Onions, after the preliminary cleaning, finely chop or, for example, rub.
  2. In the resulting onion mass, add eggs, semolina with flour and salt. Mix everything to get a homogeneous mass. Leave it for half an hour, during this time the semolina will swell a little, so the cakes will become more crumbly, airy.
