Carnival in Rome, the fried pastries

The frappe have a rectangular shape and they are fragrant and crunchy, made by frying the dough (but there are also those who prepare them in the oven, for a lighter result ) and then covered with powdered sugar or dark chocolate. The castagnole, instead are balls of dough deep fried in boiling oil. They’re also prepared in other variants (for example with chocolate, coffee, pistachio). These pastries are common in other areas of Italy: the ‘frappe’ are also called in other ways (like ‘chiacchiere’ or ‘cenci’).
