A little bit is enough!
If you wish you can use food coloring instead of saffron.
The mixture should have this soft yellow color.
Pour plenty of olive oil in a pan (the same amount you would use to make fryes) and turn on the heat. The oil must be hot before you pour the sauce to fry.
Use a spoon to pour a medium amount in the hot oil.
Let it fry until it is crispy.
When is nice and crispy on one side you can turn it around on the other side if necessary.
Now it is ready!
Serve inmediately while they are still warm.
