- 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
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.
