  • Mix all dry ingredients - flours,salt,chilly powder,masala,baking soda.
  • Add chopped veggies - ginger,spinach,onion,corn

  6. Hi! I purposely bought a bag of corn meal an hour ago to make corn fritters. When I googled for recipes, I came across yours and thought I have to make it! So I did and it turned out fantastic! My boyfriend (who is S. Indian) and I thought they were so yummy, and it's amazing how well all the ingredients go together. I'm happy that it was relatively easy to make with all the ingredients on hand. Thank you!

  7. Thanks for trying my version franiwack!
