Recipe by Rita~
These are savory fritters filled with pineapples, habanaro, chives, garlic, turmeric and are very addictive. Serve as an appetizer, top some grilled meats, seafood or a side to a salad. Diced red pepper mix along the pineapple would be very good in this as well.

Thank you for sharing this tasty dish with us Miss Rita. I enjoyed the spicy pineapple fritters for lunch today. I will be having the rest tonight with dinner, my dh is going to love these. Made for ZWT7 for Witchin Kitchen.
- 1 habanero, minced (use with or without seeds up to what you can handle or any chili)
- 1 tablespoon diced fresh chives
- 1 scallion, sliced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon turmeric
- 3 sage leaves, minced
- 1 cup flour
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- salt and pepper
- 2 cups chopped fresh pineapple
- oil, for frying
- Blend first 9 ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth and well mixed.
- Place in a bowl and add pineapple chunks. Stir to coat.
- In a heavy pan heat a couple inches of oil. Oil will be ready when you drop a bit of batter in and it drops to bottom sizzles and rises to surface. At this point drop by spoonfuls and fry till browned taking a couple minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels.
- Season with salt and garnish chives.
- Good served hot, great room temperature and even better cold.
