Spiced Coconut & Leek Bhajis

These little crispy fritters are full of character and can be eaten as a snack, dished up with noodles and a coconutty broth for a more substantial meal or stuffed in a flatbread with salad, coconut yogurt and pickled chillies. You can either have them spherical and deep fry them or shallow fry more like little fritters.

1. Whisk the eggs and spices. Fold in the flour until you have a smooth batter. Finely grate in the zest of the lime or lemon and season with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well.
2. Bring some water to the boil. Thinly slice your leeks. Set the sliced leeks in a sieve. Pour the water over, to just soften and lightly cook the leeks. Shake dry. Fold through the batter.
3. If deep-frying, heat a saucepan with a 10-12cm deep puddle of sunflower or rapeseed oil. If you’re shallow frying, set a large frying pan over high heat and add enough oil to create a 1cm deep pool.
4. Scoop the batter-coated leeks up by the tablespoon and shape into little balls. Deep fry or flatten if shallow frying and cook till golden all over. Finish with a little dusting of salt and a squeeze of lime or lemon juice.
