Combine all ingredients except oil in a blender or food processor. Blend mixture until mixed well but still a little chunky. Place 2 - 3 inches of oil in a skillet and heat. Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture into hot oil and cook for several minutes until golden brown. Place on a paper towel to drain. Serve warm with a variety of sauces including duck sauce, sweet and sour sauce and plum sauce.
