Delicious!! This was great! And best part it was so easy. I got more than 8 fritters using teaspoon. LOL be very careful with the temperature when frying. Made by member of "Cooks With Dirty Faces" for ZWT5

Made these tasty little treats on a griddle & we really enjoyed the subtle flavor of the papaya here! Will certainly be making these again, as I want to serve them to my veggie son & his wife! [Tagged, made & reviewed while in the Caribbean with the ZWT5]
