Hi Wen,

Happy CNY. I'm a fan of your blog. Every night, I'll pop by to check for new posting. This recipe looks good. I'll give it a try too. Previously, I have tried your sponge cake recipe. It's good! I used to attend Richard Goh's lesson but lost his recipes after moving overseas.

Regards, Hawk

Hi, I tried this receipt the other day and used only 3/4 of the water but the batter is already very runny. Can u advise if it is supposed to be this way. I didnt get a nicely shaped fritters.

Sorry for my late reply. Yes the batter is quite runny. Mine usually can get a rounded shape cos is choking with ingredient. If you want a thicker consistency adjust the flour or water. This recipe is quite flexible. Happy cooking!
