Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
2 courgettes, finely diced
1 green pepper or red pepper, finely diced
3 ripe tomatoes, finely diced
2 red chilies (optional), finely chopped
1 handful tinned sweet corn, drained
2 medium potatoes
1 handful frozen peas, thawed
1 large garlic clove, crushed
10 mint leaves, finely shredded
4 medium eggs
200g plain flour
2 tbsp oil
- In a large bowl, mix together the diced courgette, green pepper, red onion, tomatoes, spring onion, chilies, sweet corn, grated potatoes, peas, garlic and mint and mix together thoroughly.
- Season with salt and black pepper. Break in the eggs; add in the flour and mix.
- Heat oil in a, heavy-based frying pan. Add in 3–4 large separate spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan, forming 3–4 fritters. Fry over medium heat for around 2 minutes until set and golden-brown, then turn and fry for 2 minutes to brown the other side. Reduce the heat and fry for 3–5 minutes more to make sure the centers are cooked through. Remove and keep warm.
- Repeat the process, frying the remaining fritters in batches as above, until all the fritter mixture has been used.
