We have participated in the the first ever Hannukah Blog Party! It's traditional on Hanukkah to eat fried treats, most notably donuts and latkes, and we've got a fabulous array of Hanukkah themed recipes, treats and crafts from Jewish bloggers all over the world! Scroll down for links to all of the delicious treats.THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED The recipe we have chosen to feature for this party is these amazing Tropical Fruit Fritters. I made these one year for our Shul Chanukah party and have been making them ever since upon request. Something tells me we won't be getting off too easily this year either...
- 2 cups flour -
- 2 tsp. baking powder -
- 1/2 tsp. salt -
- 3 tbsp. Sugar -
- 1 tsp. cinnamon -
- 1 1/2 tbsp oil -
- 2 eggs -
- 1 cup coconut milk -
- 1 cup water -
- Canola oil for frying -
- 1/2 pineapple cut into bite size chunks -
- 1 Banana cut into bite size pieces -
1. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients for the batter. Add oil, coconut milk, water, and eggs and mix well until there are no lumps.
2. Preheat oil to 350 (use a thermometer!)
3. Place one or two fruit pieces onto the end of a wooden skewer and dip each piece of fruit into the batter, submerging the fruit all the way. Try to make sure all sides are sufficiently covered. Drop into preheated ooil (use a second skewer to help you push the fritter off the first skewer.) Fritter should rise to the top as it begins frying.
4. Turn over when the bottom is brown, and fry on the other side- less than 3 minutes total.
5. Remove with slotted spoon and place on a paper towel to drain. Dust with additional confectioner's sugar and cinnamon if desired.
NOTE: As with most fried foods, fritters are best served fresh.
