1.In this recipe I have not added baking soda as it takes lots of oil to fry the fritters however it can be added if one wishes to.
2.Inorder to get crunchy taste add 1 tablespoon rice flour too as an optional ingredient.
3.Do not add excess water to the mixture. We just need to sprinkle water over the flour mixture and mix.
