In India, fritters and chai is a common evening snack during rainy season. The aroma of chai and hot fritters out of the wok is mind blowing. Hmmmm. I believe in healthy eating, so I was wondering about the possibility of healthy fritters that would satisfy my cravings and add nutrition to my diet. I came up with Skinny Carrot Fritters!
