The "enfariñada", "faragullos" (crumbs) depending on the area, is a typical dish from A Mariña, Lugo. In Trabada it is called Enfariñada and in A Pontenova, Faragullos. In both places a gastronomic festival is celebrated for its exaltation.
It basically consists of a semi-liquid batter of flour, water and eggs. According to custom you can put milk instead of water or both. This batter is curdled in a frying pan with a little oil or pork fat and is minced with a slotted spoon, or a wooden spoon, until you get small pieces of dough (os faragullos - crumbs) that are cooked until they are a little golden, and at the same time are not raw. The curdling process can last between 15-20 minutes approximately. Of course that also depends on the amount that is made.
It can be taken with rashers or as a dessert, with sugar or honey. I usually fry the pancetta before adding the batter to give it more flavor.
Servings 2 servings


  • 1 egg
  • 100 g flour
  • 125 g water or milk
  • 50 g pancetta
  • salt
  • olive oil

Step by step instructions

  • Beat the egg together with the water and salt.
  • Add the flour until you get a semi-liquid batter, somewhat thicker than that of the crepes.
  • In a frying pan with a little oil, fry the bacon pieces until they are toasted so that they release the fat. Remove and reserve.
  • In the same pan, add the batter. When it begins to curdle at the bottom, turn it over. At that time it will break.
  • Continue cutting and stirring the dough with a slotted spoon or wooden spoon until you get small pieces, golden but not raw.
  • At the end, add the rashers so that they heat up and serve.
