Curried vegetable fritters

These tasty fritters are a great way to start the week with a good dose of veggies and a big hit of flavour! There extremely versatile so you can mix in whatever vegetables you have on hand and even add a little diced ham if you want. The batter makes enough for about four people so any extras can be wrapped in cling wrap and kept in the fridge for lunch the next day. They work really well served with a dollop of yoghurt, a squeeze of lemon and a simple salad on the side. Enjoy!
