Mississippi Hush Puppies

Found this recipe on cooking light for our movie night, these were really good i was sort of surprised.

1 1/2 dozen

1 cup self-rising cornmeal mix
1/2 cup self-rising flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk or beer (i used soy milk)
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 jalapeƱo pepper, chopped (omitted)
Vegetable oil (canola oil)

Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl, and make a well in center of mixture.
Combine egg and next 4 ingredients, stirring well; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.
Pour oil to a depth of 3 inches into a Dutch oven or large saucepan; heat to 375°.
Drop batter by rounded tablespoonfuls into hot oil, and fry in batches 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels; serve immediately
