  1. Mix all the ingredients, apart from the oil, together in a mixing bowl and season to taste.

  2. Heat a little oil in a frying pan over a low heat and add a tablespoon of the mixture. Flatten down with a fork and repeat with one or two more tablespoons depending on the size of your pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes.

  3. Turn with a spatula and cook on the other side. Press down gently on the top of the fritters with the spatula to check that no liquid batter squirts out. If it does you need to keep cooking for a little longer.

  4. Drain on kitchen paper and serve immediately with dips and salads.
