- 2 cups frozen peas thawed
- 200 gm feta cheese crumbled
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
- 4 spring/green onions thinly sliced

Make a batter by sifting flour into a bowl. Make a well in the centre. Whisk milk and eggs together in a small bowl. Add egg mixture to flour and whisk until smooth.
Place the peas in a bowl and mash about half of them. Add peas, feta, mint and onion to the batter. Add sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
Dollop 4 heaped tablespoons of the mixture into the frying pan and flatten slightly with the back of the spoon. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until they are golden-brown.
Drain on paper towel. *
Repeat with the remaining batter, adding extra oil if required.
If you’re not cooking gluten free, wheaten flour can also be used.
When cooking in batches, transfer those that are cooked to a plate lined with paper towel while cooking the remaining fritters.
