In a large beer mug, combine the flour, maize meal, baking powder, salt, sugar, nutmeg and turmeric. 

Add the buttermilk and eggs and whiskinto a smooth batter. 

Cut the viennas in half and push a skewer into each from the cut side until almost at the top but not poking through. 

Spread the extra flour on a plate and coat the viennas well, using a spoon to get to the edges.  

Fill a large pan or pot halfway with oil and heat on medium heat. 

Dip the viennas in the buttermilk batter one at a time, rotating the skewers to coat evenly. Allow excess batter to drip off. 

Fry the corn dogs in hot oil for 6-8 minutes, turning occasionally.  

Remove and place on a plate lined with paper towels.  

Serve slightly cooled with tomato sauce and mustard.  


If you have yellow corn meal (or polenta), use it instead of maize meal and leave out the turmeric powder. 

To add extra deliciousness, swop viennas for cheese grillers.
