Ingredients
  • 300g frozen peas (or fresh)
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 200ml semi skimmed milk
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 50g Asda Halloumi, drained and cut into pea-sized cubes
  • 1 or 2 red chillies, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salad, to serve
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Boil the peas for 4 minutes, then drain and set aside.

  • Sift the flour into a bowl and season with pepper. Add the milk and egg yolks and whisk to make a thick batter.

  • Add the Halloumi, chilli, flat-leaf parsley and peas to the batter. Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they form stiff peaks, then gently fold into the batter.

  • Grease a large non-stick frying pan with a little of the oil and heat over a moderate heat until just hot. Spoon in enough batter to make a fritter measuring about 7cm across. Add more batter to make as many fritters as you can comfortably fit into the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the underside is nicely browned.

  • Flip them over and cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes. Keep the fritters warm while you cook the rest of the batter, adding more oil to the pan as necessary.

  • Serve with salad and tomato ketchup or salsa.
