I bought this almost a year ago frozen, i had it in my deep freezer for almost a year. Did a fast ice water thaw and used my go to chicken wing breading. These were very similar to frog legs, but more tender and juicy.
I made two errors when making this recipe: first, I added the water too quickly when making the batter so wound up with too much of it. This meant I had to then add more chickpea flour, which made these a bit doughier than they were supposed to be. Second, I used a scoop to form them, which did not leave the edges ragged enough. They are supposed to be rough around the edges, which then get crispy when fried, but mine were too smooth and neat. That said, the taste overall was good, particularly dipped in the tamarind chutney she suggests.
