I already have some Fulcopir Bora recipe in my blog and you may find it here. Then what makes me write the same again? The difference is the coating I have used here and trust me, it is much more flavourful than the one I have used previously. Perfectly crunchy outside and soft inise, this is a must have on a rainy day. You can serve it just as a snack or with some khichuri for a perfect pair.
Though I had it just like that and here I am giving you a wise advice. If you are planning to fry it for 2 people, please arrange atleast for 4 people, since half of the fritters will vanish when you are frying them. Atleast that happens when I do it myself.
