    In a medium bowl, mix together cornmeal and salt. Stir in enough boiling hot water that the cornmeal mixture comes together enough to spoon (not too thick and not too thin.

    When your oil is hot but,not smoking,you can either spoon your mix in the oil or shape each piece.Fry in oil about 5 minutes depending on how think the cakes only flip want them to be golden and crispy.They absorb alot of oil so be sure to drain on paper towels.
