These savoury fritters are made with split pea flour and a blend of mild spices. An East Indian snack that goes well with mango chutney!
I had to go out and buy yogurt, this was so tasty. Couldn't find split pea flour, so I used my blender and made my own. And used the "self-rising flour" on this site. Lot's of work for my first batch, yes, but I knew it looked good. I am glad I have leftover batter, more every day. This is going to be my India food week, along with Elijah's Phulouries, of course. - 25 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I personalized this recipe by using garbanzo bean flour instead of the split pea flour, iand rye flour (as the self rising flour). I cooked this as if they were pancakes. Great flavor! Easy to make! I'll be making this again. Thanks for the inspiration! - 26 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I had all the ingredients on hand--believe it or not--except the self-rising flour. I had a little all-purpose flour and a little whole wheat flour. So, I sifted the two together with salt, sugar and baking powder to create self-rising flour. Also, I had on hand Urad flour, which is black bean flour. I went ahead and mixed everything together and into the oil it went. The fritters came out golden, light, spongy and so flavorful. Add mango chutney to that and what a wonderful treat! It's delicious. - 07 Nov 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
