“These are addictive. The recipe calls for peanut oil but any good quality cooking oil will do. I got this recipe from a homeschooling list that I'm on. Make them one batch at a time. Can be an appetizer or main course depending on the size you make them. Adjust spices as your prefer. Some like these with hot curry powder.”
