Easy pea and haloumi fritters

Lovely, light and delicious!

Fritters are such an easy option for dinner any night of the week. The beauty of them is in the base ingredients of flour, eggs and milk – from there you can add almost anything you like to make your favourite flavour combinations. These pea and haloumi babies are such a tasty twist and work beautifully with a dollop of yogurt and a squeeze of lemon over the top. Serve with a simple side salad and enjoy!


  • 2 cups (240g) frozen peas, thawed
  • 250g haloumi, coarsely grated
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill (you can use whatever herbs you like best though)
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 1/2 cup (75g) self-raising flour
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) milk
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil


1. Place the peas in a bowl. Use a fork to mash until coarsely crushed. Stir in the haloumi, dill and eggs. Add the flour and milk and stir until combined. Season.

2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Pour three 1/4-cupfuls of pea mixture around the pan, allowing room for spreading. Cook for 2 mins or until golden. Turn. Cook for a further 2 mins or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat, in 3 more batches, with remaining pea mixture.
