Fritters : ""handgranaded"", Member Carl_In_WA

I followed the instructions exactly . Kids were all excited about dinner with sweet-potato fritters. Well hold on, it is fritter pieces. It start of nicely in the oil and then it breaks apart drifting in all directions. Very very disappointed. What ever the reason you might have if any for the fail, kindly advise readers in the future to any possible pitfalls. I am now going to try and add more flour... no idea if i can save this. :( PS: I chose this recipe out of so many on the web as it seemed straight forward.
