Known as the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is an eight-day holiday that celebrates the miracle of oil. The best-known food eaten during Hanukkah are latkes, but we've got some new flavors for you to infuse into your Hanukkah celebration this year. Here are some of our favorites, from “healthy” deep-fried vegetables to the crazy ones, like deep-fried cookie dough, for you to try.
From The Daily Meal
The quintessential Hanukkah food. For something fun, try making it with grated beets, zucchini, or carrots.
The traditional jelly-filled donut is a Hanukkah favorite.
From Lara Ferroni
Deep-frying apple slices softens the apple ever-so-nicely, resulting in a soft, applesauce-like filling.
These honey or sugar-coated fried treats resemble donuts and are a traditional Sephardic Jewish food.
From Chung Food
A favorite menu item at Momofuku Ssäm Bar in New York City.
Like French fries, but so much better… And maybe a bit better for you?
From Blog Well Done
Deep-frying frozen balls of cookie dough nearly liquefies the dough, resulting in a perfect crunchy-melty contrast.
From Hungry in Hogtown
A light batter enrobing slightly soft oreos; the special recipe adapted from R.U.B. BBQ in New York City.
From Twinkies to Devil Dogs, Snickers Bars to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, nothing is off limit when dipped in this batter and deep fried.

Hanukkah is a joyous celebration of Jewish national survival and religious freedom. During Hanukkah, many families invite relatives and friends over to light the menorah, sing songs, play dreidel, exchange gifts and enjoy traditional Hanukkah food, especially latkes (potato pancakes). Lighting the eight candles in the menorah commemorates the miracle of light, representing how the Holy Temple had enough oil in the menorah for just one night, yet it remained lit for eight nights. Thus, oil is a key element in the Hanukkah celebration and plays a large role in cooking the traditional foods.

Ask the Expert: Fried Foods for Hanukkah
Question: I always host a big Hanukkah party and make tons of latkes, but this year my party isn&rsquot until the 7th day of Hanukkah, and I&rsquom worried my guests will be sick of latkes already. Can you give me some suggestions of other creative fried foods I can make that will still seem appropriate for the holiday?
Answer: You&rsquore right that latkes are delicious, but they can get old by the end of the eight-day holiday. Luckily, almost everything is good when fried, so you have plenty of options.
To help narrow things down I consulted with Rick Rodgers, author of more than 35 cookbooks, including Fried & True, Crispy and Delicious Dishes from Appetizers to Desserts. Here&rsquos Rick&rsquos advice: &ldquoI love latkes as much as (more than!) the next person, but then again, anything that is hot and crunchy has my vote. This Hanukkah, try an international menu with crispy treats from around the world. For starters, consider Thai spring rolls, Chinese egg rolls or Indian samosas. These can be made ahead and fried just before serving. For a main course, Mexican flautas must be deep-fried to give them their crusty tortilla shell, and they can easily be made dairy-free. If you care to keep things in the Hebrew culinary sphere, make falafel &mdash I often serve them on a large salad with the tahini dressing, and pita on the side.
Dessert means fritters of some kind &mdash I love dipping apple and pear wedges in club-soda batter for a dessert that celebrates winter produce. But come on&hellipis it Hanukkah without tayglach?&rdquo
I totally agree with Rick, these are all great options for frying. Two other suggestions? If you want to be kind of whimsical, fried matzah (basically matzah brei) and fried herring are also crowd pleasers.
Wow, I am getting both hungry and jealous of your future guests who get to enjoy this fried bounty. Just make sure to leave out lots of napkins for blotting.
Pronounced: KHAH-nuh-kah, also ha-new-KAH, an eight-day festival commemorating the Maccabees’ victory over the Greeks and subsequent rededication of the temple. Falls in the Hebrew month of Kislev, which usually corresponds with December.
What foods are traditionally eaten during Hanukkah?
Essentially a deep-fried doughnut usually filled with strawberry jam and eaten during Hanukkah.
While jam is the tradition, Jewish people around the world have experimented with their sufganiyot fillings over the years.
The scrumptious-looking treats are often topped with a dusting of powdered sugar.
Gold chocolate coins are often associated with Christmas as a stocking filler but during Hanukkah, Jewish children can be showered with chocolate gifts.
The coins are often wrapped in silver or gold foil with the tradition dating back to the 17th Century.
The word “gelt” in Yiddish, the traditional language Jewish people began using around 1000 years ago, translates to “money.”
It’s not all about sweet treats during Hanukkah – mouth-watering beef brisket is often served up during the celebrations.
Beef brisket first became popular in eastern Europe at a time when more expensive cuts of meat were unaffordable.
Brisket isn’t just synonymous with Hanukkah and often makes an appearance at the dinner table at Passover and Rosh Hashanah.
Latkes are one of the most popular foods eaten during Hanukkah and can be eaten with savoury or sweet accompaniments.
Latkes are fried potato pancakes that can be served with either apple sauce or sour cream.
Jewish people eat a lot of food that has been fried in oil due to the story of how Jews reclaimed the Temple in Jerusalem from King Antiochus in the story of Hanukkah.
They could only find enough oil in the temple to light the menorah for one day but the candelabra carried on burning for eight full days.

Deep Fried Foods: 17 of the Best Deep Fried Recipes
Crispy on the outside, melt in the mouth on the inside . deep frying yields such spectacular results when done properly that it's hard to re-create that delicious culinary magic any other way.
Imagine life without deep fried golden crispy chicken, perfect fries, crunchy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and delicately panko crusted tempura. And that's just the beginning.
Whether you're after comfort food snacks or elegant appetizer ideas, entrees or desserts, the deep frier has got them all covered, from chicken to churros.
If you're new to deep frying it can be daunting as a beginner. Here are some tips to follow to get started and take the fear out of frying.
Here are 16 deep fried foods along with the recipe on how to cook them:

What Are Traditional Hanukkah Foods?
- Matzoh Ball Soup: It&rsquos traditionally eaten Passover, but some families serve it for many Jewish holidays. Matzoh balls, made of matzoh meal, eggs and some kind of fat (like schmaltz), are a serious upgrade from crumbled crackers, no?
- Latkes/Levivot: Bless these crispy, addictive potato pancakes. Latkes and levivot are essentially the same&mdashthe main difference is that the former is a Yiddish word, while the latter is Hebrew.
- Brisket: No, not what you buy at your favorite barbecue spot. Jewish brisket is equally as tender but braised in the oven like a stew, often with potatoes and carrots.
- Kugel: It&rsquos basically a noodle casserole made with egg, cottage cheese and sugar.
- Sufganiyot: Aka jelly doughnuts. While doughnuts were traditional holiday fare by the 12th century (foods fried in oil are an homage to the Hanukkah miracle), Polish Jews started filling them with jelly in the 16th century once sugar became cheap.
- Challah: This old-school braided egg bread can do a lot more than make for a top-notch French toast. No Hanukkah spread is complete without it.

What to Make for Hanukkah: Deep Fried Artichoke Hearts & More
Potato latkes served spitting from the pan with a dollop of applesauce or sour cream, and pillowy sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts) brimming with jam are the stuff that deep-fried dreams are made of. But when it comes to Hanukkah deliciousness, they are just the beginning. Around the world, Jewish communities celebrate the Festival of Lights by frying everything from sweet cheese filled pancakes to chicken. (Yep, fried chicken is traditional Hanukkah food.)
After all, Hanukkah&rsquos primary food theme is not potatoes &mdash it&rsquos oil. The holiday celebrates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem after the Macacabees recaptured it from the ancient Greeks. As the legend goes, the Maccabees only found enough olive oil to rekindle the Temple&rsquos menorah for one night. But somehow it lasted for eight full days and nights. It is hard to imagine a better way to celebrate Hanukkah&rsquos &ldquomiracle of oil&rdquo then by indulging in a ridiculous amount of fried food.
Below, I have rounded up some of my favorite holiday fritters from across the globe. I have also shared a recipe for super-simple, briny fried artichoke hearts from my cookbook, Little Book of Jewish Appetizers. As a die hard latke and doughnut fan, I would never suggest taking either of these treats out of the annual Hanukkah rotation. But when it comes to fried food, more is definitely merrier.
Meanwhile, a frying #protip: Cooking stuff in hot oil is going to make your kitchen smell like oil &mdash even if you fry with the windows open. Combat the stale grease smell by throwing some water, cinnamon, cloves, and a sliced lemon into a saucepan, and bringing it to a simmer over medium heat. Before long, your apartment will smell like a winter wonderland.
For Syrian and Lebanese Jews, no Hanukkah is complete without atayef &mdash petite pancakes that get filled with sweet, soft cheese and chopped pistachios, and then deep fried. (Think: a puffier take on a cannoli). To gild the lily, these fried wonders are then doused in a syrup perfumed with rose water or orange blossom water.
Perhaps it comes as no surprise, but Italian Jews are basically culinary geniuses. On Hanukkah, they deep fry a variety of different foods, including chicken. The chicken pieces are simply battered with egg and flour (though you can dress them up by adding spices like oregano, thyme, or smoked paprika to the flour), then slipped into oil until crackling.
North African Jews celebrate Hanukkah with rustic doughnuts called sfenj. The fritters are made from a yeasted dough that is stretched into elongated rings and sizzled in a pan of bubbling oil. The golden-fried pastries are then drizzled with honey or an orange blossom syrup, or sprinkled with sugar. Moroccan Jews serve them with hot mint tea.
India&rsquos historic Bene Israel community has a unique take on sweet Hanukkah fritters. They enrich the dough dried milk powder and ghee, giving the Hanukkah treats a sweet, creamy flavor. The little round fritters go from the fryer directly into a sugar syrup flavored with cardamom.
Sephardic Jews serve keftes &mdash patties made from vegetables, meat, or fish &mdash year-round. But the oil-slicked, pan-fried fritters make perfect Hanukkah fare. One of the most common varieties, keftes de Prasa, are made from spinach and get a kick of heat from chili flakes.
Deep Fried Artichokes
Rome&rsquos historic Jewish community has a cuisine all of its own. The most famous dish from the Roman Jewish kitchen is carciofi all giudia, aka &ldquoJewish-style artichokes,&rdquo which crisps artichokes into crunchy, salt-kissed flowers. They are super delicious &mdash if you ever find yourself in Rome, head straight to the &ldquoJewish ghetto&rdquo neighborhood and seek them out. But they also are a chore to prepare, since each artichoke needs to be painstakingly trimmed of its thorny outer leaves. The recipe below offers a hack, beginning with brined artichoke hearts that crisp into dreamy little nuggets, without the fuss.
Fried Artichoke Hearts
These fritters taste great served with nothing more than a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. But if you&rsquore feeling fancy, mix together a dipping sauce of mayonnaise with a little honey and sriracha or harissa paste, to taste.
2 cups unseasoned panko breadcrumbs
2 14-oz cans quartered artichoke hearts, drained and dried with paper towels
1. Line a large plate with a couple of layers of paper towels. Put the flour in a wide, shallow bowl, the eggs in a second bowl, and the bread crumbs in a third bowl. Dredge the artichoke hearts in the flour, shaking off excess. Dip in the egg, then dredge in the breadcrumbs. Place on a separate plate while the oil heats.
2. Fill a large saucepan with 1/2 in of oil and heat over medium heat until shimmering. Working in batches of 7 or 8, fry the artichokes until crisp and golden brown, turning once with tongs, 6 to 7 minutes per batch. Adjust the heat if the artichokes are browning too quickly, and add more oil, if necessary. Use tongs or a slotted spoon to transfer the fried artichokes to the paper-towel lined plate and let drain. Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately, with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing.

Your Healthier Hanukkah Menu -- Fried Food Still Included
During the Jewish festival of lights, people light candles for eight nights, after which they typically enjoy holiday songs and lots of food. Often, that means eating two traditional foods -- potato pancakes and jelly doughnuts, both which are fried. Believe me, I love my fried food, but after eight nights of eating oil-laden carbs, I start feeling greasy. Not to mention, I tend to win the dreidel game (think poker with a dreidel), where the prize is chocolate coins. So, in recent years, I started tweaking the menu to make it healthier. Here's how:
1. Plan the menu.
My trick is planning a well-balanced (non-fried) meal an hour or two before candle lighting. Then, I serve light finger foods and desserts after the candle lighting ceremony, which is usually around sundown.
2. Pick your poison.
Latkes (or potato pancakes) and jelly-filled doughnuts are the holiday's biggest fried food culprits, but they're also part of the tradition and bring back memories from my childhood. Each night, I pick one -- not both -- dish to serve fried. The other, I lighten up.
3. Lighten up the potato pancakes.
Potato pancakes are made by grating russet potatoes and mixing them with egg and some spices. They can be deep-fried in oil and served with applesauce and sour cream. But to create a lighter alternative, I do the following:
-- Fry mini-potato pancakes to help keep portions in check.
-- Grate a combo of potatoes and parsnips, zucchini or carrots, which are all lighter in calories than potatoes. This combo can be pan-fried in a few tablespoon of oil and finished in the oven.
-- Instead of sour cream, I opt to serve my potato pancakes with applesauce made with apples, pears or cranberry-apple chutney. That can help use up the leftover frozen cranberries from Thanksgiving, too.
4. Create healthier jelly doughnuts.
As for the jelly donuts, you could pick them up at your local bakery or doughnut shop, but what's the fun in that? In a real emergency, I've done that, but I opt for the mini jelly-filled doughnut holes. Otherwise, here's how I lighten up these babies:
-- Fry mini doughnuts and cover them with blue and white sprinkles.
-- Bake mini-doughnuts and sprinkle them with confectioner's sugar and cinnamon. You can purchase a non-stick mini doughnut pan for about $10 to $15.
-- Make doughnut cookies or crisps with a jelly glaze. It's the same idea, but with fewer calories than a full-sized doughnut.
5. Trade chocolate coins for monopoly money.
When it comes to playing dreidel for chocolate coins, sometimes, we just use monopoly money or pennies instead of chocolate. Although chocolate isn't fried, the calories in these addicting coins can add up quickly.
6. Make healthier appetizers.
A few of my go-to finger foods that are also family-friendly include:
-- Crudites: Besides being super easy to prepare, vegetables provide only 25 calories per half cup. Further, the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans reports that 90 percent of Americans do not meet their daily recommended amount of veggies.
-- Healthier dip: Bean dip, yogurt-based dip and hummus contain protein and fiber to help fill you up. Avoid dips filled with cheese and other super high-calorie ingredients to make room for the fried goodies.
-- Lean protein: Skewers are kid- and adult-friendly. Choose chicken, lean beef or shrimp, and serve them with a tomato-based dipping sauce. Meatballs are another family favorite that can be served with toothpicks. Make them with lean ground beef, lamb, turkey or chicken.
-- Veggie-based appetizers: A light version of stuffed mushrooms, beet chips and skewered mozzarella and grape tomatoes add nutritional value to the meal without going overboard on calories.
7. Balance your desserts.
If doughnuts or doughnut variations are part of the menu, balance them out with fruit. For instance, try:
-- Fruit salad: You can dress up your fruit salad in a few ways, such as by putting the fruit on skewers and serving them with vanilla yogurt dipping sauce or by finely chopping the fruit and placing it in teeny glasses with mini spoons. (Kid's love anything mini.)
-- Cooked fruit-based desserts: Round out dessert with a cooked fruit dish like poached pears or apple crisp served in single-serve ramekins.
Bottom Line: When it comes to the festival of fried foods, it's all about planning and being creative in the kitchen so you can enjoy the traditions and food the holiday has to offer.

‘Art of the Deal – for working people’: Psaki corrects Fox reporter trying to link Biden talks to Trump motto
In the latest instalment of the White House versus Fox News, press secretary Jen Psaki agreed to call the president’s negotiations with on infrastructure the “Art of the Deal” with one correction – “for working people”. Ms Psaki announced on Friday that Joe Biden’s $2.3 trn spending plan had been reduced to $1.7 trn in the “art of seeking common ground”.

We’ll stand up to China as the sheriff of the seas, says Boris Johnson
Boris Johnson has said the deployment of HMS Queen Elizabeth will show “our friends in China” the UK's belief in the international law of the sea. The Prime Minister made his comments ahead of the £3 billion aircraft carrier’s first operational deployment to Asia, where it will interact with more than 40 nations. Mr Johnson said: "One of the things we'll be doing clearly is showing to our friends in China that we believe in the international law of the sea, and in a confident but not a confrontational way, we will be vindicating that point.” Mr Johnson add that while “we don't want to antagonise anybody”, the Government believes that “the United Kingdom plays a very important role, with friends and partners, the Americans, the Dutch, the Australians, the Indians many, many others, in upholding the rule of law, the international rules-based system on which we all depend”. It comes after The Telegraph revealed that the warship will sail through the South China Sea (a vital shipping route which Beijing has become increasingly assertive over in recent years) but will not sail through the Taiwan Strait, despite Beijing's vow to annex Taiwan, which it claims as its territory. Admiral Lord West, the former first sea lord, previously said such a move was "unnecessary". "I think it's enough of a statement by going through the South China Sea," he said. "You don't need to rub people's faces in it by travelling through the Formosa Strait."
U.S. Attorney General Garland weighs release of Trump-era obstruction memo
U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland faces a Monday deadline to decide whether to appeal a court order criticizing his predecessor William Barr, an early test of his willingness to defend the Justice Department's acts during Donald Trump's presidency. U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson gave the Justice Department until May 24 to appeal a decision she issued earlier this month that faulted Barr for how he publicly summarized Special Counsel Robert Mueller's 2019 report and ordered the release of a related internal memo. A group of U.S. Senate Democrats on May 14 urged Garland not to appeal Jackson's decision, saying in a letter that Barr's actions need to be exposed quickly.
She Was Raped, Strangled, Set Alight in a Field. Cops Say They’ve Found Her Killer.
Montgomery County Sheriff’s OfficeAfter almost four decades, a 75-year-old Texas man has been arrested for sexually assaulting a woman before strangling her and setting her body on fire in a field—a grisly crime that a notorious self-proclaimed serial killer once insisted was his doing.The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office on Friday said that Thomas Elvin Darnell had been charged with capital murder in connection with Laura Marie Purchase’s March 1983 murder. Darnell was arrested on May 11 in his Kansas home and extradited to Texas on Thursday. He is being held in Montgomery County Sheriff's Office Jail with no bond.Authorities say Purchase had been missing for months before Darnell sexually assaulted her, then fatally strangled her and set her body ablaze in a wooded area near a highway. Purchase’s nude body, which was left “posed” at the scene, was found on March 17, 1983, by a patrolling deputy who responded to reports of a roadside fire in an area where 18-wheelers were known to congregate. She was positively identified in May 1986. Prior to her murder, Purchase was allegedly living in Houston with a man who went by the nickname “Howie” and played in the local band “Malibu.”Husband Arrested for Murder 11 Years After Claiming Wife Was Shot During Struggle With IntruderDarnell’s arrest marks the second time authorities thought they had solved Purchase's case. Henry Lee Lucas, also known as The Highway Stalker, originally confessed to the murder before she was even identified. He was convicted of her murder in 1986. Lucas once confessed to committing as many as 600 murders between 1960 and 1983 and was convicted of murdering 11 people and sentenced to death.Lucas’ sentence was ultimately commuted to life in prison in 1998 before he died of natural causes in 2001. At least 200 of Lucas’ murderous confessions have since been debunked, the sheriff’s department said. His murderous spree—and penchant for false confessions—were detailed in Netflix’s The Confession Killer.In 2007, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Cold Case Squad deemed one of those false confessions to be Purchase’s murder after re-testing the DNA found at the crime scene. Lucas’ alleged partner-in-crime, Otis Elwood Toole, was also cleared of any wrongdoing.“In October 2019, Investigators sent the DNA evidence for genealogy testing. An investigative lead generated from that genealogy report showed Thomas Elvin Darnell, a 75-year-old male from Kansas City, Kansas, as a potential suspect. A DNA search warrant for Thomas Darnell was obtained as a result of the investigation,” the sheriff’s office said in a Friday press release.The discovery sent detectives to Kansas City, Kansas in March to collect a new DNA sample from Darnell. Last month, the sample was determined to be a positive match.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Joe Manchin calls increasingly likely GOP filibuster of Jan. 6 commission 'so disheartening'
Republicans in the Senate are "ready to mount a filibuster" of legislation creating an independent panel to investigate the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, as GOP opposition to it is "hardening by the day," Politico reports. Citing interviews with Republicans, Politico writes that there is "almost no path to even opening up debate" on the bill to create the bipartisan commission, let alone a path to actually passing it. Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.) told the outlet that "I don't think there will be 10 votes on our side for it" and that heɽ "be surprised" if there's "even a handful." Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who has repeatedly expressed opposition to eliminating the filibuster, in an interview "seemed aghast" that Republicans are set to block the commission, Politico wrote. "So disheartening," he said. "It makes you really concerned about our country." Manchin added, when asked if the GOP was abusing the filibuster, that he's "still praying we've still got 10 good solid patriots within that conference." Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) earlier this week announced his opposition to the proposal for the commission, arguing the legislation was "slanted and unbalanced." Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has promised, though, that the Senate will vote on creating the commission. Schumer, Politico writes, plans to bring the bill to the floor while "daring Senate Republicans to block it," and with a GOP filibuster likely, Democrats "see an opportunity to begin making their case to reluctant members that the 60-vote status quo is unsustainable." Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass), for example, asked, "How do you go forward if you can't make it work over something like an independent commission?" Read more at Politico.
