    Hi, I am new. This recipe sounds great. I will make it tonight. However, I found another that also adds clove and nutmeg and curry with the onion and ginger. Usually, I follow first time recipes to the letter. I think I will incorporate these 2 together and hope for the best. What do you think?

    So yummy! My fritters where moist. My plantain was overripe. I did just mix flour to just mixture fell off a wooden spoon slowly. This was nice and spicy and I will make again. They did stick to the bottom so a non stick pan would be a good thing. Thanks. Made for ZWT 2011.
