Instructions
For the Shrimp Stuffing
  1. Soak the poppy seeds in warm water, some 15 minutes or so. Drain from water, grind to a smooth paste with 2-3 green chillies and a splash of water. Transfer to a mixing bowl. To the same mixing bowl, add the shrimps, chopped green chillies, grated coconut, mustard oil and salt. Give it all a hearty mix. Keep aside.
For the Batter
  1. Add all the ingredients listed to another mixing bowl, pour water, mix well to form a medium thick batter, ensuring there are no lumps.
Frying the Fritters
  1. Gently wash the pumpkin flowers, pat dry.
  2. Take a flower, carefully add 1.5 tbsp of stuffing to the inner cavity of the flower. Do not over-stuff the flowers. Gently fold the tips of the petals inward to close the blossoms, secure with toothpicks.
  3. Heat oil. Dip the stuffed flowers into the batter, deep fry till golden. Remove the toothpicks, serve immediately.
