      These are mildly flavored and have an interesting texture. I made mine a bit spicier, even adding a bit of cayenne. I had a difficult time making these - they were very fragile to turn and deep fry and I ended up losing a good bit of batter into the surrounding oil, but this was no doubt due to my technique. I tried frying a few in just a little oil, more like a pancake - but the deep frying is definitely the way to go - makes them nice and crunchy and light. I served these with a cranberry and a mango chutney - both complemented them nicely. Thanks for sharing!
