- 1 large ripe pineapple
- 1 Cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 Cup maize starch
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- 1 Cup ice-cold water
- 2 tbls sugar
- 2 cups Vegetable oil for frying
- 1⁄4 Cup confectioner's sugar for dusting
Start by peeling your pineapple and cutting it into 1/2 inch thick rounds. Remove the core from each round.
In a large bowl, combine your flour, cornstarch, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add the ice-cold water to these dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Your batter should be thick but also able to run off a spoon.
Heat your vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a deep pan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Dip each pineapple ring into the batter, ensuring it is completely covered.
Carefully place the batter-covered pineapple into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Remember to flip the fritters halfway through frying.
Once done, use a slotted spoon to remove the fritters from the oil and place them on a plate lined with a paper towel to drain the excess oil.
Dust each pineapple fritter with some confectioner's sugar.
Serve your pineapple fritters hot and enjoy this fruity, crunchy delight.
