    Frugal Fifer's Note:

    A tasty starter that is really popular here in the UK. This recipe is from a Madhur Jaffrey book that I bought 1/2 price in a sale. Although these are best served warm my youngest DD prefers them cold and I must agree with her that they are just as tasty cold. They are delicious served with a mint raiata or chilli sauce. Prep time does not include the standing time.

    1. 1
      Break the egg into a bowl and beat well, add 4 tbs water and the lemon juice. Mix, add the flour and mix well with a whisk. Put in the spices, coriander leaf and chilli if using. Mix well and set aside for at least 10 minutes or longer. Mix again with a whisk. The batter should be of a fairly thick, droppable consistency.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a wok or deep fat fryer over a medium heat. A minimum of 3 inches is required in the centre of a wok. When the oil is ready, put the onions in the batter and mix – this is always best done just before cooking.
    3. 3
      Take heaped tsp of the batter and drop into the hot oil. Use all the batter this way. Stir and fry the fritters for 7-8 minutes or until golden. Remove and drain on kitchen paper and serve hot.

      Brilliant. All I did differently was to add 1tsp of baking power for a lighter texture. Great recipe, better than most restaurants!

      Thanks for posting this great recipe. We loved them. I served them with Cilantro Chutney. My husband asked if I hired the local Indian Chef!!
