4 C (about 750 g) frozen baby peas, thawed in hot water and drained

1 bunch spring onions, thinly sliced

zest of 1 lemon

200 g feta cheese, crumbled

½ C (125 ml) finely chopped mint leaves

1½ C (375 ml) self-raising flour

4 large eggs

½ C (125 ml) milk

salt and pepper to taste

sunflower oil, for frying

sweet-chilli sauce, tomato and chilli chutney or jam, for serving

In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients, except the oil and sweet-chilli sauce, together until well combined. Allow to stand for 15 minutes before frying.

Use a non-stick frying pan and heat 1 tsp (5 ml) oil over moderate heat. Place heaped tablespoons of the fritter mixture into the pan, flatten them out slightly and fry until golden brown on each side, about 30 seconds per side. Keep the heat moderate to prevent burning and add a little oil before frying each batch.

Cover the cooked fritters with foil to keep them warm or serve at room temperature. Serve with your choice of condiments.

Variations

Serve with cream cheese, sliced cucumber and a few slices of smoked salmon or with tzatziki.
