Spices of Christmas- Recipe 1
The first is by chef, Mita Mistry - Hot Courgette Fritters with a Cool Chilli & Mint Dip which pairs beautifully with Ahmad Darjeeling Tea to warm you up this winter.
"There isn't anything like your mum's cooking.. and I love my mum's muthia.. hot fritters, made with chickpea flour and spiced with fresh green chilli, garlic, ginger, garam masala, turmeric with sesame seeds for an added little of texture.. Traditionally, these Gujarati steamed fritters are made with fenugreek or bottle gourd but we love to use new season courgettes as a little twist.. I've added a traditional chilli and mint yoghurt raita as a little dip as the fresh mint goes so well with the courgette. Like all the good foods.. simple to knock up and oh so moreish.. and you may have to stop yourself from eating the whole batch.. or just give in, like me.. Seriously, that's how good they are"
