  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) baking powder
  • 200-300 millilitres lukewarm water
  • Oil for frying (enough to to fill pan 1-2 inches)


1. Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a bowl.

2. Evenly mix dry ingredients with a spoon then slowly add in water and mix until the dough comes together (it should clean the bowl, it's okay if its a little dry).

3. Cover and set in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.

4. Heat oil in a frying pan or deep fryer to 340 F.

5. Divide the dough into 10-12 pieces and gently knead each piece into a ball.

6. Pinch the sides before slowly dropping them into the hot oil.

7. Fry for 5-6 minutes (they should be golden brown) Place them on a paper towel to soak up any excess oil and serve them hot !
