These fritters are flavoured with cumin and coriander and served with a chilli-tomato relish. You could also serve them with a mixed salad and couscous to make a more substantial meal.

  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder, spices, mint and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Squeeze the courgettes in a clean tea towel to remove any excess water. Add the courgettes to the flour mixture with the spring onions and season with pepper. Add 150ml (1/4 pint) water and stir well until combined. Leave to stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Mix together all the ingredients for the relish in a bowl. Season and set aside.
  4. Pour in enough oil to coat the bottom of a large, nonstick frying pan and place over a medium heat. Use 50ml (2fl oz) spoons to measure the courgette mixture into the pan – you should be able to cook 4 fritters at a time – flatten the tops slightly with a spatula and cook for 2 minutes on each side until golden and set.
  5. Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm while you cook two more batches, adding more oil when necessary. Serve 3 fritters per person with the chilli-tomato relish by the side.
