“Giudìa” in roman dialect means ” in the Jewish way” because this dish is typical of the Jewish tradition and even typical of the restaurants that are located in the Jewish Ghetto in the heart of Rome.
Artichokes cooked in this way become like a big rose and are very crispy.
Ingredients for 4 people:
Extra virgin olive oil
1 clove of garlic
Wash the artichokes and remove the outer leaves that are hard, cut the stems leaving only 3-4 cm and clean them too.
Cut, all around the artichoke, the leaves using the “spelucchio” forming a spiral on top of the artichoke.
Moisten with lemon and dip them in cold water (in which you have added lemon juice) for about 30 minutes. Rinse the artichokes, open gently the leaves with your hands and add salt.
Pour plenty of oil in a pan, the artichokes should almost float in the oil, add a clove of garlic.
Cover and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes, then turn off the heat. Pull out the artichokes and grabbing them by the stem crushed his head against a plan to open up all the leaves of the artichokes and leave in this position.
Warm up plenty of oil in a pan and when it is boiling, place the artichokes upside down to brown them. Do not forget to brown the sides and also the stem!
Drain the artichokes upside down on paper towels and serve hot with chopped parsley and Origani.0
