  1. These chili bites dissolved in the frying pan. I used oil to make the batter as the flour and herbs did not mix as a batter(sorry, I am not very good in the kitchen but loved these things while on holiday to Cape Town). Perhaps I should have added eggs?

  2. You should've used the water to make the batter

  3. You bunch of Monkeys, what about the DHOLL? this is why your pooped in the Oil.
