Made without eggs, these Spiced Vegetable Fritters are savory vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free. Served as a snack or appetizer, these Spiced Vegetable Fritters are full of delicious flavor and a punch of heat from the addition of green chiles. The fritter batter is made from a blend of chickpea and rice flour and water to which is added a spiced blend of coriander, cumin, cilantro, and chile peppers. Coat potato wedges, cauliflower florets, and slices of eggplant in the batter and fry until golden.
