Fried foods are one of the most popular elements in our traditional cuisine, though the word "fritter" hardly conveys the variety of these. Frituras is the quintessential street food and can be (roughly) classified as fritos, torrejitas, y croquetas.
Fritura is also the name used for the street vendors that serve mostly fried foods.
I picked the easy fritter recipes that most lend themselves as party food, both savory fritters, and sweet fritters. If you are — for whatever reason — not a fan of fried foods, you should know that many of these dishes also have an alternative non-fried recipe in our blog, so maybe search for it.
