This is a fabulous snack from bread. If you've ever had fritters, you know that they have a satisfying texture that are both crunchy and soft. Feel free to omit chili powder if you prefer a milder version. You can add any veggie you like such as carrot. corn, french bean, cauliflower, cabbage and many more to the batter. The consistency should be slightly thicker than pancake batter.
Fried fritters are always a favorite but this recipe may just surprise you, how tasty and healthier they turned out. They make a great appetizer or on the go snack and so easy to whip up.
