vegetable fritters

1 cup of gram (chick pea) flour – some supermarkets do stock this
1 cup of water
a little salt
a teaspoon of chopped coriander or half a teaspoon of curry powder (both optional)
sunflower oil for shallow frying
2 cups of vegetables of your choice broken or chopped into desired size – for example brocolli or cauliflour florets, celery chunks, onion rings etc.

Beat the flour and water together with the salt and coriander until a smooth batter is formed. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Dip the vegetables in the batter and then fry for about 5 minutes turning once. Nice served with oven chips or rice and a big green salad and mayo.
