    These fritters look amazing. Since you seem to deep fry a lot of stuff, can you please post a picture of the vessel you use for deep frying? I know that non stick is not good for deep frying, so i bought a aluminium kadai from India, but its really tough to clean after each use. Any suggestions in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
