Sweet, sour and wonderfully comforting. Sami got this recipe from his friend Gianluca's mother.
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients well, apart from the sugar and cinnamon and set aside for 20 minutes. In a separate flat plate, mix the sugar and cinnamon.
Heat the vegetable oil well. When hot, use two spoons to drop dollops of the mix into the hot oil, turning them frequently until golden. Lift the fritters from the oil onto kitchen paper. While they are still hot, roll them in the sugar and cinnamon mix. Eat at once!
