Heat oil in a deep-fryer or deep skillet to 375 degrees
In large bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Pour in the milk, eggs and oil. Stir until well blended. Stir in the chopped tropical dried fruit until evenly distributed.
Drop tablespoonfuls of batter into the hot oil, and fry until golden brown on both sides about 5 minutes depending on size. Fritters will puff up while frying. Fry in small batches so they aren’t crowded. Remove from hot oil with slotted spoon and drain briefly on paper towels. Toss with cinnamon-sugar mixture while still warm.
