    Serve without delay, while hot. Place both dishes in the centre of the table where everyone can help themselves to fritters and dip them in the dressing.

Remarks:

If you can't find chickpea (gram) flour, never mind, just use normal flour, and add a little curry powder to retain the Indian feel.

Use a yoghurt that's thick and slightly sharp like "greek-style" if possible.
