Frituras De Malanga
This is a very popular Cuban appetizer, and great for lunch or a snack. In fact, a good "fritura" recipe will often define a Cuban cook. The fritters are made small so they easily cook through and get to the table crispy, crunchy and crackling but soft and warm inside. As a child, I remember anxiously eating my grandmother's freshly-fried Frituras, not having the patience to wait for them to cool down just enough so they wouldn't burn the inside of my mouth...they were that delicious that common sense wasn't an option!
