Chia seeds will absorb 10 to 12 times their weight in water. They are a natural thickener with a sticky texture which will make a better coating batter mix for deep frying.

For a more crunchy fritter, replace the sticky rice flour with the chickpea flour. Make sure your oil is warm enough, use a thermometer for exact measurement.
