Fritters can be eaten at any time of year on Mallorca but are most popular during the “festivity of the virgins” at the end of October when the famous “day of the virgins” is celebrated.
The tradition says that on this day lovers give each other gifts: the men give the woman carnations and women make fritters to the man. Although its preparation goes to the detriment and, every time, less people know how to prepare them now, fritters are still made and bought at this time of the year.
Its preparation is simple: you only need some potatoes, flour, yeast and eggs for the dough. The making process is a bit more difficult: fritters are prepared exclusively with the hands and they are fried in boiling oil.
If you fancy tasting them wether in love or not you will not regret the experience!
