That the writer of this recipe is deeply insecure and in need of psychological intervention is not in question. What concerns me is that she feels entitled to call these “fritters” when they should be called croquettes, or at the very least, patties. And since when does cornmeal need to be stone-ground? Why so hostile, Ms. DeQuattro? Something you should think about is that not everyone can get fresh okra. I wish you would respect the lives of others and not be so careless in the future.

Am I the only one disturbed by the use of Aleppo pepper in this recipe? What with everything that’s going on, couldn’t you have chosen a pepper that doesn’t directly lead to the slaughter of innocents? Personally, whenever I make Yoghurt-Marinated Chicken Kabobs, I think about my choices, about what those choices say about me, and about our place as human beings on this planet. I guess Eric Mandell doesn’t feel like he has to do that.
