Method

  1. Combine the polenta, flour, cornflour, baking powder, salt and shallot in a medium bowl. Add the egg and buttermilk and stir to combine.

  2. Add enough oil to a medium saucepan to reach a depth of 6cm. Heat to 190°C (when the oil is ready, a cube of bread will turn golden brown in 10 seconds). Carefully place 4 dessert-spoonfuls of dough into the oil. Cook, turning occasionally with a slotted spoon, for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Reheat the oil and repeat with remaining dough. Serve hot or at room temperature.
