torta fritta

Cut the potatoes in dices and cook them in slightly salted water.
Drain the potatoes and pass them into the potato masher. Keep the cooking water and let it cool; we will use it later to knead.
In a cup of warm water dissolve the yeast.
Add to the mashed potatoes the flour, the oil, the cup of yeast and water, add some salt and the right quantity of water (the one used to cooked potatoes) to obtain a firm and homogeneous dough.
Put some flour on the work plan, before putting the dough and cover it with a towel and a blanket for at least a couple of hours.
After this time roll out the dough with a roll pin in spite to thin it. Then cut strips which have to be passed through the dough-sheet machine.
Cut the dough-sheets in rectangular and put them immediately in the boiling oil.
Serve them hot.
