Method

  1. Heat enough oil to come 2.5cm up the side of a large, deep frying pan. Put the asparagus and courgettes in a large bowl. Whisk the remaining ingredients together to make a batter. Pour it over the vegetables with some seasoning, then mix.

  2. Use a large spoon to drop bhaji-sized spoonfuls of the mixture into the hot oil – you’ll have to do this in batches. Cook for 3 mins, until golden brown, then flip over and cook for another 2 mins. Drain on kitchen paper. Leave to cool before packing into containers.

  3. To make the chutney, pour the vinegar and sugar into a saucepan and put over a medium heat to dissolve the sugar. Add the ginger and tomatoes, then turn up the heat and boil for 10 mins until thickened. Cool completely before storing in a tub.
