Vegetarian version

This is a healthy alternative to fried fritters, and a very good way to get children, and adults to eat vegetables. I have used fresh chickpeas and corn on the cob instead of tins, as they have a much nicer taste and no additives.

I have served it with rocket, sour cream, and some mango chutney.

All the flavours went well together to make a delicious meal!

I have made it is a vegetarian dish, however, at the last moment decided I wanted to add some bacon with it, and for those who are not vegetarians, this complemented the flavours of the vegetables.

Preparation Time: 45 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes plus cooking fresh ingredients if required
Makes: 13 medium fingers

Ingredients
200 g dried chickpeas, soaked overnight, or tinned chickpeas
cup reduced-fat milk
1 egg
Just under cup self-raising flour
large zucchini, grated
160 g corn kernels
1 tbsp fresh chopped mint
2 small spring onions, thinly sliced
Salad leaves, chutney, sour cream (optional)
Bacon (optional)

Method

If baking, as against frying, heat the oven to 170C

If using dried chickpeas, soak in plenty of water for 8 hours or overnight.

Cook these chickpeas for about an hour in clean water.

Meanwhile if using fresh corn on the cob, cook these for about 15 minutes. It is worth the extra work as they taste quite different to the tinned corn kernels.

Cooked corn on the cob


Cut down the sides of the corn cobs to remove the corn.

Corn stripped from the cob


Break up these strips so they form normal corn kernels.

These will be tastier than the tinned variety


Drain the chickpeas and roughly process in a blender or similar.


chickpea
Roughly chopped chickpeas


Whisk the milk and eggs together. Place the flour in a bowl. Gradually add the milk mixture to the flour, mixing until it is smooth.


mixing
This should be a smooth paste now


Stir in the chickpeas, grated zucchini, corn, mint and spring onion.


chickpea
Mixture ready to bake or, fry, if you prefer


Put this mixture into a small baking oval dish lined with baking paper, and add a bit of grated cheese on the top.
