Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in a bowl. Add milk, egg yolks, salami and cheese; mix well. In a small bowl, whip 2 egg whites, gently fold into mixture. In a skilled add about 1 inch of oil, enough to allow fritters to float. Heat oil to 350 to 360 degrees and maintain that temperature throughout cooking. Add batter by the tablespoonful, dropping to form a small mound (about four or five mounds at a time). Fry on both sides until golden brown.
