Spicy Crab Fritters with Mustard and PepperThough my kids generally prefer vegetable fritters, these spicy crab fritters is an exception. Instead of crab, you can also use fresh prawns or calamari. Depending on your taste, you can increase or decrease the number of spices and herbs. Make sure you use rice bran oil (for deep frying) to get the required crunch. These fritters should be prepared fresh and must be consumed on the same day. Optionally, you can also mix shredded vegetables with the crab to get a unique variant of this recipe. Mustard sauce is one of the primary ingredients of this recipe and shouldn't be omitted. Leftovers of these fritters can be used in a stew or can be stuffed in sandwiches. Let's make these delicious fritters.
