  1. Heat 30ml oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and cook the onion, garam masala and chilli flakes, if using, for 5 mins. Stir in the sprouts and frozen peas and cook for 2 mins. Spoon into a large bowl, then add the mashed potato and egg; mix well. Shape the mixture into 12 evenly sized patties.
  2. Heat the remaining 100ml oil in the frying pan over a medium heat. Shallow-fry the fritters, in batches, for 2-3 mins each side until dark golden brown. Set aside on kitchen paper.
  3. For the sauce, use a stick blender to whizz the coriander and lemon juice with 50ml water. Stir in the chutney. Serve alongside the hot or cold fritters, with lemon wedges for squeezing over.

Tip: These fritters are great for using up leftovers. Simply replace the sprouts with whatever you have to hand from your roast dinner. Chopped up turkey, ham, roast carrots or squash would all work well.
