My boyfriend and I both thought these were phenomenal. I did double the curry b/c the blend I have is fairly mild and we like things spicy. We didn't think they needed a dipping sauce at all; perfect as is. Keep in mind that the blend of curry you use will have a lot to do with the outcome. Curry is not a spice unto itself, it is a blend of several different spices and the flavor and strength varies widely. I tasted the batter before frying to make sure the spice level was correct.
In regards to bad reviews b/c these were "bland" or "unhealthy" -- they were bland b/c the amount of curry needed depends on the blend you use, and if you don't want to eat something unhealthy, WHY are you making a FRITTER (which basically means FRIED BATTER) recipe?
Anyhow, after trying these with the original recipe and reading the reviews, I feel inspired to make a batch for Thanksgiving but omit salt and add brown sugar instead, omit curry powder and use pumpkin pie spices instead, then dust with powdered sugar when they're done frying.
Thanks for a fantastic & versatile recipe!
