  • Preparation time: 10 min
  • Cooking time: 3 min
  • Serves 6

You’ll need:

  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • 375 ml (1½ cup) polenta or braai pap
  • 250 ml (1 cup) flour
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) baking powder
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 250 ml (1 cup) milk
  • 12 frankfurter sausages
  • mayonnaise and tomato sauce to serve

Do this:

  1. Heat oil in a deep soup pot.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Beat the egg and milk together and gradually stir this mixture into the dry ingredients. Whisk together to make a heavy batter.
  3. Put skewers through each frankfurter sausage and dip it into the batter until well coated.
  4. Place frankfurters into the hot oil a few at a time and cook for 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning the skewer in the oil to make sure it cooks evenly all the way around.
  5. Drain on a plate lined with kitchen paper towels.
  6. Serve with mayonnaise, tomato sauce or even sweet chilli sauce.

Top tips:

  • Use cocktail sausages instead of frankfurters.
  • For vegetarians or as a sweet snack after a meal, try this with bananas or apple wegdes. Cover them with the batter and deep-fry as above. Serve with natural yoghurt flavoured with orange juice.
