For the fritters
For the tomato salsa
- STEP 1
Tip all the fritter ingredients into a bowl. Gradually work in about 200ml cold water until everything is bound in a thick, spoonable batter (you can do this an hour ahead, but the fritters should be cooked at the last minute).
- STEP 2
Heat a decent layer of oil in a large frying pan, then fry large spoonfuls of the batter for 2 mins until golden. Flip them over, cook on the other side, then lift onto kitchen paper and keep warm while you cook another batch.
- STEP 3
Make the salsa by mixing all the ingredients together. Serve the fritters with the salsa for spooning over.
