Ingredients

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

Instructions

  • Beat the egg together with the water and salt.
  • Go adding the flour until you get a semiliquid batter, a little fatter than that used for the Galician crepes.
  • In a pan with a bit of oil, fry the pieces of bacon until they are toasted to release the fat. Remove and reserve.
  • In the same pan, pour the batter. When it begins to curdle at the bottom, turn it over. In that moment it will break.
  • Continue cutting and stirring the batter with a slotted spoon or wooden spoon until you get small pieces, golden but not raw.
  • At the end, add the rashers to heat them up and serve.

Notes

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