  3. Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium.  Once heated, drop batter in by heaping tablespoonfuls.  Let cook until golden brown and then flip. (Turn heat to medium low if they are browning too fast, they should be golden by the time they are cooked half through and ready to flip). Once done, drain on paper towel lined plate or bowl in a warm oven until they are all cooked, 2 or 3 batches. (Makes 12 fritters)
