Instructions
  1. Prepare your ingredients.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt together with a fork. Stir in the egg until the dough becomes crumbly.
  3. Add ice cold water and using hands, knead the dough until it is soft but firm enough to shape into a ball.
  4. Pull off a small piece of dough and set aside for testing oil. Divide dough into 8 equal portions. Shape them into 6-inch breadsticks and set aside.
  5. Heat the oil on high in medium saute pan until the oil begins to simmer. Set the tester dough into the oil. If it begis to bubble, the oil is ready. Remove the tester dough and reduce heat to medium. Gently lay the Festival into the oil and fry on all sides, turning until they are golden brown, approximately 8 minutes.
  6. Using tongs, gently remove Festival from the oil and drain on a paper towel to drain.
