Sweet Pear Fritters

I never tried any recipe with pears before as we usually eat them whole as a fruit. Finally I found a recipe here that suits our taste. I made some changes to the original recipe though.
Ingredients I used:
  • 2 Pears of any kind (I used Chinese Pears)
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp ground Cinnamon
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • Oil to deep-fry

Preparation:

In a bowl, whisk together milk, egg, sugar and cinnamon. Add the flour to this and mix well into a smooth batter. Set aside.

Peel the skin of pears and core out the seeds. Then slice into rings, thickness doesn’t matter.

Heat the oil in a deep skillet. Then dip the pear rings in the batter prepared above just to coat and drop them carefully into the hot oil. Fry till they become golden brown in color. Then remove them and spread on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
Serve them hot or cold. These sweet Pear Fritters tasted so delicious. These can be topped with Vanilla Ice Cream or drizzled with Maple Syrup, if desired.
The original recipe can be found here.

These delicious Sweet Pear Fritters goes to Raaga of The Singing Chef, who has been hosting a wonderful event, “AFAM March – Pears”, as a continuation of “A Fruit A Month”, an event started by Maheswari of Beyond the Usual.
