Sorullitos or Sorullitos de Maiz are Puerto Rican cornmeal fritters. With a crispy outside and a soft and buttery inside, they make for a delicious snack, appetizer or side dish.
- 1 1/2 cups fine cornmeal I used Goya Fine Cornmeal
- 2 cups water
- 1 tbsp butter
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
- vegetable oil for frying
- 3 tbsp mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp ketchup
- 1 garlic clove finely chopped
In a pan or skillet, add about an inch of vegetable oil. Heat oil over medium high heat.
Carefully add a few sorullitos at a time to the oil. Cook for a few minutes on each side until golden brown. (Turning over with a fork as one side starts to brown nicely).
Drain on paper towels and continue cooking the rest of the sorullos until all are cooked to golden perfection.
Serve with MayoKetchup sauce. Enjoy!
