Miscellaneous:
Methods were innovated by baking. Alas, it did not quite work out. 








Overview
7 : 3 ratio of rice flour to all-purpose flour proves dominant over the 5 : 5 ratio. The results were crunchier and crispier for 7 : 3 ratio of rice flour to all-purpose flour in contrast to the other ratio where it turned out to be a bit soggy.

Baking of fritter was proven to be not suitable for an alternative for cooking method.
