Chanukah is the Festival of Lights, and those lights were made possible by some miraculous oil. Hence two of our favorite fried traditions: latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (donuts). They’re delicious, and we love them, but Chanukah is eight nights — that’s eight opportunities to celebrate the miracle with something fried. So we bringing you eight fried food recipes that are a little wacky, but could just become your family’s new Chanukah favorite. Some sweet, some savory, all in moderation. Happy Chanukah!
