Slightly sweet and very moreish fried dumplings, called festival, from Jamaica, these are traditionally served with jerk meats.–Virginia Burke
LC More on Moreish
For those of us who aren’t Brits–or literate in utterances that commonly escape Brits’ mouths–the term “moreish” means, quite literally, something that’s sooooooooooo darn good, it makes you want more. ‘nuf said.

I really enjoyed these fritters, and they were a snap to make. I needed a half cup of water to bring the dough together, and they came out crisp on the outside but dense and soft on the inside. They’re quite plain, making them a great accompaniment to strongly flavored jerk chicken — keep some sauce aside for dipping. Don’t try to use a knife and fork on them — better to use your fingers!
