  1. Preparation : Mix the first five ingredients in a medium bowl to blend. Let the bater stand for 1 hour at room temperature. Mix the crabmeat, bread crumbs, two of the egg whites and the parsley in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the mixture into 24 mounds. press each mound firmly into a ball. Roll each crabmeat ball in flour; shake off excess. Immediately before frying, beat the remaining egg whites in a small bowl to stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the batter. Heat the oil in a deep fryer or heavy saucepan to 360F. Dip the crab balls, one at a time, into the batter, coating completely. Carefully lower into the oil. Repeat with the remaining crab balls, cooking until pale and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoonto transfer the fritters to paper towels and drain. Serve with Curry Sauce. Makes 24 fritters. NOTES: Do not overcrowd the fryer or saucepan when making these crab fritters. Make no more than 5 fritters at a time. Be certain to slide the fritters gently into the hot oil.
