Acarajé - afro-brazilian fritter by Rita Taraborelli

Sorocaba, São Paulo, BR


Acarajé is a traditional afro-brazilian recipe very popular in the lovely state of Bahia (Brazil). It's a delicious fritter usually deep fried in a local oil called "dende". The fritter is commonly served with vatapá and a spicy vinagrete, the vegan suggestion is to use jackfruit instead of prawns in the vatapá.
Delicious and perfect in a summer party ;D
