Frittelle de Riso (Italian Rice Fritters)
In America, Hanukkah food typically refers to two things: latkes, Eastern European fried potato pancakes, and sufganiyot, jelly-filled doughnuts that are favored in Israel and increasingly popular here. While very different in composition, what ties these two foods together is that they are fried in oil — a technique that directly connects to the "miracle of the oil" in the Hanukkah story.
As delicious as they are, however, latkes and sufganiyot are just a small part of Hanukkah's larger food traditions. Here are five lesser known Hanukkah treats from around the world that will add a touch of global flavor to your holiday table.
