    Pets'R'us's Note:

    I could have these appetizers as a meal, if you want you can also add a finely chopped green chili to the batter. Gram flour is also known as besan and chickpea flour.

      These were really great! I used regular flour, since gram flour isn't readily available here and they turned out fine. Thanks for posting this! I'll be using the recipe again when my hubby gets homesick and wants Indian food.

      The spice mix in this recipe is nice, but I was wary of the fact that the only vegetable in this fritter was onions. Instead I did a mix of onion and shredded yams. My boyfriend found the onion flavor still to be too strong, even with the amount cut by half. Also, I had trouble getting these to fry up, they kept coming apart in the oil. I had much better luck baking them in the oven on a cookie sheet.

      These are delicious! We had them with a mango chutney and they were quickly devoured. I used a griddle in an effort to reduce the fat and it worked pretty well though the patties were harder to keep togther than when fried.
