Vegetable Fritters

These came about from a recipe I had tried in a cookbook that looked really good, but didn't turn out to be very tasty. I meddled around, added and replaced different ingredients, and this is what I came up with...after so many times of trying. I use different vegetables each time for variety. They are really good and get eaten up very fast in my house!


  • 1 1/2 cups garbanzo bean flour
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1 tbs. mango powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 potato, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 1 carrot, cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 green pepper, cubed
  • handful of cilantro (I just pick off the leaves and leave them whole)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • oil for deep frying
Combine flours. Add mango powder, cumin, salt, cayenne, baking soda & turmeric. Add potatoes, carrots green pepper & cilantro. Add water to make batter. Heat oil, deep enough to drop tbs. of batter that can float. Fry fritters, turning occasionally, until golden. Enjoy!

I love fritters especially since it means that one gets to enjoy them with all sorts of dips, salsas, chutneys and pickles.

These look super yummy! Never used mango powder. Is it bitter?

meeso said...

~ Saju, thank you :)

~ Padma, thanks for the comment! That is actually what the book called them...and my boyfriend calls them bhaji's and I call them tasty and just want to eat them :D

~ Andy, It's not really bitter, maybe a little sour but It's really good in a lot of things. A lot of recipes say you can substitute lemon or lime juice but I like the mango powder better most of the time...thanks for the comment!
