Another Lithuanian dish and the first bean dish I liked! No starchy bean taste, smooth texture and this gorgeous sauce!
Kidney bean fritters (Pupu kukuliai)
1 cup dry white beans
½ cup flour
100 g fresh bacon
2 Tspns cream
1 small onion
1. Soak beans overnight. Drain, cover with fresh water and cook.
2. Grind beans well in food processor. Add egg, salt and some water. Form small fritters with floured hands. Thickness of about half centimeter is the best. Toss to the boiling salted water and cook for about 7-10 minutes. Drain and keep warm.
3. Now is the best part: Cut bacon into small cubes, melt and brown in the frying pan over low heat, then brown the onion in this fat. Add few spoons of cream, season with salt and pepper. Pour the sauce over bean fritters.
4. Serve in a clay bowl with a wooden spoon!
