If you love tender-in-the-center coconut macaroons as much as I do, you will love these. They are pure decadence and wonderfully simple: grated malanga and shredded coconut are mixed with sugar and bound with egg white, shaped into balls, and deep-fried. After developing the recipe for the savory Malanga Fritters with Serrano Chiles and Garlic, I was inspired by their crispy texture to create a coconut confection with the malanga. Just try to eat only one!
