Sweet, aniseed, and soft, these party fritters are quite unique, to say the least, and although you might think fennel seeds are too strong and overpowering in this recipe they work incredibly. Make these fritters sweet or savory they are a fantastic universal party food option suitable for gluten-free and vegans.

Author's Notes

Makes 20 fritters. Because of the sugar, these fritters are not super crispy, and because they are made with polenta, they will become slightly chewy after a few hours. For a sweeter version add an extra Tbsp of sugar and 1 1/2 tsp of fennel seeds. For a savory version swap the sugar and fennel seeds for your savory options.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a mixing bowl, mix the Harina P.a.n.® White Corn Meal (2 cups) , Water (2 cups) , Caster Sugar (2/3 cup) , Fennel Seeds (1 Tbsp) , and Salt (1 tsp) until you get a firm dough.
Step 2
In a pot warm up the Vegetable Oil (to taste) at medium temperature or use a deep fryer.
Step 3
Start to make the fritters. Take some dough and roll it in a bowl of the size of half of a golf ball. Then roll it out between your hands to form a sausage shape. Take both ends of the sausage and press them together to form a "tear" shape with a hole in the middle.
Step 4
Fry each fritter at medium temperature until they turn golden brown, approx 8 to 10 minutes. Once golden brown, remove them from the oil and place them over kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil.
Step 5
Serve and Enjoy
