  3. Add the curdled milk and corn oil to the large bowl and mix.
  4. If mixture is too runny, add more cornmeal and flour. If too thick, add more curdled milk.
  5. Heat your pan and add oil for frying.
  6. Pour mixture into a ziplock bag (or use a pastry bag).
  7. When the frying pan is hot, cut off a corner of the ziplock bag and pipe the mixture into the pan in the shape of small rings. (The frying pan is hot enough if the batter sizzles upon contact.)
