MY NOTES

Why are my vegetable fritters soggy?

One common culprit is excess moisture in the vegetables. When the veggies are not properly drained, the released moisture during cooking can result in sogginess. Another reason could be overcrowding the pan during frying. It can trap steam, causing the fritters to become soggy. To achieve crispy fritters, maintain some space between them in the pan.

Can I make these fritters ahead of time and reheat them?

After preparing and frying the fritters, allow them to cool to room temperature. Then, place them on a baking sheet and store them in the refrigerator for up to a day. To reheat, preheat your oven to around 350°F (175°C) and place the fritters on a baking sheet. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until they are heated through and crispy. Alternatively, you can reheat them in a toaster oven or on a stovetop skillet with a little oil for a few minutes on each side.

Can I bake these vegetables fritters for a healthier option?

Certainly! To do so, preheat your oven to around 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the fritters on the sheet and lightly brush or spray them with oil to achieve a crispy exterior. Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, flipping them once midway through, or until they’re golden brown and cooked through.

Tips for making fried vegetable fritters extra crispy

Using a high-quality oil with a high smoke point, such as vegetable or canola oil, at the right temperature (around 350°F or 175°C) is crucial for achieving a crisp exterior. Avoid overcrowding the pan while frying to allow the fritters to cook evenly, and don’t flip the fritters too frequently; let them cook undisturbed for a few minutes on each side to develop a nice, golden crust.
