The method


Peel and roughly chop the swede before boiling for 15 minutes until tender. Drain and set aside.


Chop the chilli, onion, and coriander.


In a large bowl mix together the flour, creme fraiche and egg to make a smooth, thick batter. Stir in the chopped chilli, onion, coriander and spices and season to your taste. Roughly mash the swede and add to the mixture.


Heat a glug of oil into a large non stick pan and fry small, flattened spoonfuls of the mixture for 2 minutes on each side until crisp and browned.


Best served with mango chutney. Enjoy!
