pea and courgette fritters

Normally I’m a bit dubious about courgettes but these were delicious (if I say so myself). Really quick and easy, would be a great starter for up to 4 or take these as a guideline for the ingredients per person if you fancy it as a main meal.

120g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
Sprinkle of salt
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes (optional)
Handful frozen peas, defrosted (pour boiling water over them and let stand a few minutes)
1 courgette, grated (or other veg, e.g. I also did these with a grated carrot and diced onion)
80-100ml water
6 tbsp vegetable oil

  1. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and mixed herbs, then stir in the peas and courgette until coated well.
  2. Add the water and mix until it forms a paste.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan and, once hot, drop in blobs of the mixture. Fry on one side for a few minutes until golden then turn. Once cooked, drain on a kitchen towel while you put the next batch on.

serve with…

Cheat’s tomato chutney-sauce: cut 3 ripe tomatoes into 8, then heat with 1/2 tsp harissa / chilli paste and a few drops of worcestershire sauce. Nom!

Or – any chutney, and/or mint mixed with some yoghurt.
