I usually am not a big fan of Fritters, but these schezwan fritters are my favorite. My muma used to make it for me for my tiffin, that too in the early morning. By this you would get an idea that these fritters are easy to make and less time consuming. The main is the chopping part that takes some time, rest is just mixing and frying.

For these schezwan fritters you would need some chopped veggies like cabbage, capsicum, carrots. You can even use French beans, but boiled. For binding you would require a mix of cornflour and plain flour. So that the veggies would be intact and the fritters retain the desired shape.

To make it more crisp coat these fritters with cornflour and plain flour mixture.

I most important point I would like to discuss here is the water content of the vegetables. The water would not let the veggies unite together and also would restrict the fritters from keeping hold of their shape.

For this we would add salt to the vegetables and keep it aside for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes squeeze out all the water. And then proceed with the recipe.

For better understanding I have uploaded the video

Ingredients: (6 to 8 Fritters)

1 ½  cup Cabbage (finely shredded)

After adding salt check it and adjust, do not add it later after squeezing out the water as it would increase the moisture.

The recipe is medium spicy you can add in more schezwan sauce and chilli flakes to make it more spicy
