Another solution to get rid of the gloomy rainy weather, to make it warmer after Samosas and Batata Vada is Chilli Fritters or what the Tamilian South Indians would refer to as "Molaga(chilli) Bhajji (fritters)". It is especially a sight to watch out for in Marina Beach. Aaah!
The aroma thats wafts in the beach, women with big round bindi's sqatting near huge vessels with oil for frying out these hot delicacies, vendors running around calling out "Pattani Manga Sundal" - unforgettable moments these sure are!The fritters are the best thing to have esp during rainy seasons. And if you cant bear too much heat - its fine, remove the seeds from the peppers and you are good to go.I keep varying the measurements for the batter which is needed for the fritters, but the basic ingredients are as below
A mashed potato and onion mixture always works :)
Good idea :) but I try to avoid using soda in my normal day to day cooking as much as possible. I keep that for baking.
