  8. Achu, plantain fritters sounds yummy and perfect snack with a cup of tea. Thanks for linking to EP Series.
    Sorry to say but as per Julie's EP Series rule the spice/herb should not be an optional ingredient, it should be at-least 1 tsp and a mandatory item. If you could make required changes like - take out the 'optional' and alter the quantity of cardamom powder to 1tsp I would be more than happy to include them in the round up or else maybe I'll have to reject it. Pls check and let me now. thanks a lot again :)

    1. Hi prathibha

      Am treally sorry i ll remove optional..but i promised is i added cardamom flavor on plantain batter.... Will remove an optional..Thank u for telling it to me. I added 1 tsp of cardamom powder.
