These Japanese fritters make a quick & delicious snack. A Japanese exchange student gave me this recipe when I was at school.

Very quick and easy to make. I added some onion and a dash of ginger for a bit more flavor. I always enjoy a recipe this versatile; we were able to add leftover shrimp and bean sprouts. The bean sprouts added a very nice crispy texture that everyone really enjoyed. Many enjoyed these plain. Some of the children ate them with ketchup and mayo. The adults preferred of using a seasoned oyster sauce, mayo mixture as a topping. Though a very casual dish, all enjoyed it.
