For me, this recipe brings back childhood memories of our family holidays at Whangamata. Simple ingredients from your holiday-home pantry and freshly gathered seafood make for delicious fritters. These are scrumptious served between two pieces of fresh white bread, on their own or with salad.
- 1 cup self-raising flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 250 g tuatua meat, each piece chopped into 3 bits (see tip)
- 1 small onion, finely diced
- 1 firm tomato, finely diced
- oil for cooking
- In a bowl, mix flour, eggs, milk and curry powder to a smooth batter. Season.
- Add tuatua, onion and tomato. Mix to combine.
- Heat a frying pan or barbecue plate to medium.
- Add enough oil to shallow-fry fritters. Cook spoonfuls of mixture in batches, flipping halfway through, until golden brown on both sides.
