Just tested these out for lunch and they were delicious! Used red onion instead of spring onions, increased the chilli content and added a little bit of finely chopped red pepper and a clove of garlic. Will try having these as a main meal once the weather gets warmer and serve them with a big salad.

Was fantastic! It looked like it would be too liquidy and I was tempted to add more flour but they are like fritters and solidify great. I couldn't get chilli jam so used Tesco Greengage Conserve mixed with as much chilli powder as it would hold and it worked well. Very tasty recipe!

Any idea what other flavours would be good? I am allergic to both chilli and coriander.

These were delicious! A really nice brunch option and something a bit different. My partner devoured his!

Loved these! Would be great made on a BBQ flat plate & also good way of sneaking veggies on to kids plates! ;)
