This is a very popular Cuban appetizer, and great for lunch or a snack.

Serving Size: 6 


  • 4 malangas (peeled & grated)
  • 1/2 tspn onion powder
  • 3 garlic cloves (mashed)
  • 2 tbsp parsley (chopped)
  • vegetable oil
  • 3 small eggs
  • 1 tspn salt



In a bowl, whip eggs. Add onion powder, garlic, parsley and salt. Mix well, then add the malangas. Mix again, then refrigerate for a few hours. Using a frying pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Using a spoon, grab spoonfuls of the malanga, and drop it into the pan. You can fry five or six at a time. Make sure to fry on both sides until the malanga fritters are golden brown. Place on a large platter with paper towel to drain the excess oil.

Serve hot and enjoy!
