 baking powder, nutmeg and baking soda in large bowl. Add oil, buttermilk and
 egg; beat with fork until smooth. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls (do not make
 too large or they will not cook through) into hot oil. Fry about 3 minutes
 or until golden brown on both sides; drain on paper towels. Immediately roll
 in sugar.
