Recipe

Yield: Serves 2 to 3

Ingredients

  • ½ cup white or yellow cornmeal
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • About ¼ cup milk
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
  • 4 scallions, including some of the green, finely chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Directions

Sift the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Add the beaten egg and enough of the milk to make a light paste. Add the jalapeno pepper, scallions, and cayenne and blend thoroughly.

In a large heavy deep pot, heat at least 2 inches of the oil until it begins to smoke. Drop the batter by the tablespoonfuls into the hot fat and fry until golden.
