Here's a picture. (Image somehow didn't work...I'll work on it later.)

480g ricotta
4 eggs
1 cup flour
3 tsp baking powder
Zest of a lemon
Pinch salt
Pure icing sugar and ground cardamom, for dusting
Honey, for drizzling
Vegetable oil, for frying

Whisk the ricotta and eggs together. Sift the flour baking powder and salt together then fold into the ricotta/egg mix. Add the zest.

Heat oil to 170C. Using teaspoons, dollop balls of mixture into hot oil. Cook until golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper then dust with icing sugar mixed with a little cardamom. Serve warm, drizzled with honey, or on their own.
