Coconut Fritters/ Coconut Kababs/ Coconut Pancakes you call it by any name, you are going to love this kind of savory appetizer. I loved this with my thai sweet & chilli dip which were ultimate combination for me. You can also try them with my versatile easy coriander/ cilantro dip or any kind of sauce or dip of your choice. In cold freezy monsoon days they are a treat for your taste buds. Normally when we think of making fritters we think of potatoes, onions and some other vegetables. But this is a rare combination you may try as a appetizer. Or even you can use them in curry as koftas. I just loved them. There was a little crisp and soft at the same time.

So here hero ingredient is coconut and I have taken mixing agent gram flour. This is a complete vegan and gluten free recipe. This is also a perfect tasty appetizer for those who are following keto diet.

The only thing I struggled is getting a good coconut scrapper. This is so much required because with the scrapper the coconut comes out smoothly and at the same time they are juicy because of the way of extraction. At the same time if you will grate the inner soft part with a grater the extracted thing will not be as soft as it should be. In that case the fritters would be bit tighter. To get softer pancakes you need correct extraction method. I would suggest a good coconut scrapper for this dish.
