Fritter is any food coated in batter and deep-fried. How about just deep frying the batter? Different isn't it?

When batter is deep fried, they puff up into little delicious fluffy pillows. These little fried batter balls have an appetizing golden brown color with a crispy exterior and a soft interior.They are a light, airy and fun to eat, you can never keep count of how many you ate!

This is my back up recipe when I don't have anything at home to dip in the batter and make fritters! These babies are seriously perfect to make for a group of friends. Warm up your cool spring evening with a plateful of fried batter balls.


Deep Fried Batter Balls

Makes - 5-6 Servings

All purpose flour - 1 cup
Rice flour - ½ cup
Baking soda - a pinch
Yogurt - ½ cup
Onions - ¼ chopped
Green chillies - 3 chopped
Curry leaves - 3-4 (for added flavor, optional)
water - to make thick batter
Salt - to taste
Oil - for deep frying

Heat oil in a pan to about 350 F.

Take all the ingredients in a bowl, add water and mix together to form a thick batter. You want the batter thick enough to be able to scoop with a spoon.

First, test oil by dropping few drops of batter in the frying pan. Taste to make sure it is fully cooked.

Now, simply mound the batter on a teaspoon and drop the batter into the hot oil.

Fry in small batches in oil over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes or until a deep golden brown.

Drain on paper towel and serve immediately with tomato ketchup.
