- Sour cream
- Chicken stock
- Cooking oil
- Dill or parsley, fresh
Mix 1/2 cup flour with a pinch of salt. 1 egg, beaten, and 8 tablespoons chicken stock. Mix well to make a batter.
Get young, small cucumbers, allowing 3 per person. Cut off the tips, and scrub thoroughly.
Dip 12 cucumbers in the batter, and drop, a few at a time, in a kettle of hot oil (360 degrees). Fry until golden and crisp.
Serve hot with sour cream and a sprinkle of fresh dill or parsley. These are often served with buttered new potatoes. Serves 4.
