Expert Tips

If you prefer the salty version, just skip the sugar and add 2 to 3 tablespoons of parmesan cheese or grated queso fresco.

Puerto Rican almojábanas are fritters made with rice flour. It's typically found in the northeastern and central regions of the island. This recipe has a sweet version and a salty one. The sweet type is served drenched in honey or brown sugar. The salty version has parmesan cheese or queso fresco. Personally, I prefer the sweet kind with a cup of coffee.
