  4. In a pot or wok, pour oil to a dept of about 1-inch and heat it over medium-high until it reach 350 F or you can test it with a bamboo chopstick. Stand it in the oil and if some small bubbles gather on the surface around the chopstick then the oil is ready.
  5. Scoop about 1 tbsp batter and gently put it into the hot oil. Cook just as many as will fit in the wok without crowding it. Turning the fritters once and fry them until crisp, puffed and golden brown. It will take about 3 minutes. Use a skimmer and scoop out the fritters to the towel-lined dish to drain.
