Spiced Swede Fritters [vegetarian]

1 swede, about 650 – 700g, peeled and diced into small chunks

75g plain flour

100ml crème fraiche

1 egg beaten

1 large red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

1 med red onion, finely chopped

1 tsp cayenne pepper

2 tsp garam masala

1/2 tsp ground turmeric

1 tsp crushed coriander seeds

small handful fresh coriander, chopped

sunflower oil, for frying

mango chutney to serve

Cook the swede in boiling water until tender. Drain well. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, crème fraiche and egg to make a smooth thick batter. Stir in the chilli, onion, spices and coriander, then season generously. Roughly mash the swede and stir into the mixture. Heat a splash of the oil in a large non-stick pan and cook small, flattened spoonfuls of the mixture for about 2 mins on each side until crisp and browned. Serve with mango chutney and maybe a nice glass of wine
