With a tablespoon, drop a small amount of batter, a heaping tablespoon, in the oil. Fry until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Turn halfway through cooking. Taste to check if the fritters are sufficiently salty. Adjust the seasoning of the batter if necessary, and cook the other pieces. For uniform browning, fry about 6 to 8 pieces at a time. Drain on paper towels.
