I have given 2 recipes, the first is more of a batter, it is used to dip larger pieces of seafood or vegetables, the second one is used for fritters. You can add a variety of Vegetables, fruits or even meats to make your fritters. The sky is the limit. I have also listed 2 different cooking methods, Deep frying and pan frying. Feel free to use either method, the results are both delicious.
