Spicy Vegetable Fritters

You can adapt the ingredients in this recipe based firstly on what you like and secondly on how spicy you like it.  It has taken me a few goes to perfect this one, including a batch with no taste at all and a batch which were so spicy they took the roof off my mouth!  Vegetable-wise, I have used courgettes, sweetcorn, mushrooms, peas-so experiment as you see fit.  I could also see a place for some prawns or small pieces of meat.

Vegetables of choice (see above for ideas)
1 onion
1-4 red chillis depending on taste
1 knob of ginger (again feel free to adjust based on taste)
2 tablespoons of curry powder
1 tablespoon of ground cumin
1 teaspoon of turmeric
140 grams of self raising flour
Half a teaspoon of bicarb of soda
Approx 200 ml of cold water

Chop all the veggies.

Place in a bowl with all the other ingredients except the water.

Add the water a bit at a time until you have a thick batter (you may need more or less water).

Heat oil in a pan and fry in batches - these can just be browned in a pan and then finished in the oven.

Serve with salad and sweet chilli dipping sauce.
