Prep Time : 0:05 | Cook Time : 0:10 | Total Time : 0:15 | Serving : 8 person.


  • 120g (2/3 cup) polenta (cornmeal)

  • 50g (1/3 cup) plain flour

  • 1 tablespoon cornflour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 green shallots, ends trimmed, finely chopped

  • 1 egg, lightly whisked

  • 80ml (1/3 cup) buttermilk

  • Vegetable oil, to deep-fry


  • Step 1

    Combine the polenta, flour, cornflour, baking powder, salt and shallot in a medium bowl. Add the egg and buttermilk and stir to combine.

  • Step 2

    Add enough oil to a medium saucepan to reach a depth of 6cm. Heat to 190°C (when the oil is ready, a cube of bread will turn golden brown in 10 seconds). Carefully place 4 dessert-spoonfuls of dough into the oil. Cook, turning occasionally with a slotted spoon, for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Reheat the oil and repeat with remaining dough. Serve hot or at room temperature.
