Mixed Platter Of Fritters

What could be better than a platter of fritters on a cold rainy day. That's just how the weather was yesterday. So I made the most common recipe associated with such weathers. Also, I made it in a very simple manner. You can add the masala's to the batter. However, I prefer to avoid making it spicy as my kiddo relishes them too.
Fritters can be made with loads of veggies depending on your choice or preferences or
as in my case, availability of veggies in the fridge.

Ingredients for Batter :
Gram flour : 1 cup
Rice Flour : 2 tbsp
Ajwain : 1 Heaped tbsp
Green Chillies : 2 Chopped
Chopped Coriander : 2-3 tbsp
Salt : To Taste
Water : As Required
Oil for Deep Frying

Veggies in my fridge :
Potatoes
Eggplant
Bottlegourd (Dudhi)
Onion



Recipe :
Take a large bowl. Mix all the ingredients of the batter except water. Now add around 3-4 tbsp of water and whisk it with your fingers. Whisk it in a circular motion following the same direction. Add some more water to form a consistency of thick cream. The batter should stick to the spoon. If you want to be absolutely sure, then take a glass of water and then put a drop of batter in it. It should settle in bottom of glass. If the batter dissolves then you have added too much water in the batter.

Heat oil for deep frying in a wok. Add a drop of batter in oil to see if its the right temperature. The batter should float. If it settles in bottom of wok, then oil isn't hot enough. If it burns instantly, then oil is too hot. You should reduce flame and try again after some time.

Dip one veggie at a time in the batter and coat it from all sides. Drop it in the wok. Drop softly or the oil will spill. Repeat the process and add more veggies till wok is filled. Fry them till its golden brown on all sides. Drain them with a strainer and remove and keep on kitchen tissue.

Repeat the whole process till all veggies are done.

Serve hot with a dip of your choice. We like it with ketchup and coriander chutney.
