Ingredients
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced
  • 1 red pepper, de-seeded and cut into pieces about the size of a pea
  • 3 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 75ml milk
  • 85g self-raising flour
  • 1/2 level tsp chilli powder
  • 1 level tsp ground cumin
  • 2 x 300g cans Asda Black Eye Beans, drained and rinsed
  • Salad, to serve
  • Sweet chilli dip, to serve
Method
  • Cook the spring onions and red pepper in 1 tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes, until slightly softened. Tip into a bowl and set aside to use later.

  • Put the eggs, milk, flour, chilli powder, cumin and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Mix with a wire whisk to form a thick batter. Stir in the spring onions and red pepper with the black-eye beans.

  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan. Heap spoonfuls of batter into the pan, one at a time, leaving a gap between each. Fry the fritters for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Keep warm while you cook the rest. Add more oil to the pan when needed.

  • Serve with salad and sweet chilli sauce.
