Inspired from Eat Caribbean cookbook

INGREDIENTS
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Enough cold water to make a soft dough
Oil for frying
DIRECTIONS
1. To make the festival recipe, mix the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Add just enough cold water to make a stiff dough.
2. Flour your hands well and knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for just a minute or so. Divide the dough into 12 portions. Roll each portion into a small cigar or sausage shape that’s somewhat tapered at the ends.
3. Pour enough oil into a skillet to reach about 1 inch deep. Heat the oil over medium-high heat until shimmering but not smoking. Carefully slide a few of the dumplings into the oil and fry, turning as necessary, until golden brown on each side, adjusting the heat if necessary, about 8 minutes total. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Repeat with the remaining fritters.
