Chicken, Cheese & Frying are my three favorite words in the world. When they come together the result is CHEESY CHICKEN FRITTERS jam-packed with flavors. One of the annual occurrences in our house at this time of the year is that wifey dear usually binges on meat dishes just before the holy month of Shravan begins. It is her job to pick out the meat and my job to cook it (LAUGHS!!!).  On this beautiful Sunday afternoon she picked outRead More

Hot of the fryer Jalapeno Fritters with a Twist!!! These pint-sized goodies are stuffed with CHEESE… Very soon after coming to Birmingham I was told that it was possible to experience all the seasons of the year in the same week in this city.
