Serves 4 (makes 24)
250g frozen peas
⅓ cup mint leaves, roughly chopped
½ cup milk
1¼ cups self-raising flour
2 green onions, thinly sliced
250g haloumi, cut into small cubes
2 tbsp parmesan, grated
salt and pepper, to season
olive oil, for frying

1 Preheat oven to 120C. Put peas in a large bowl, cover with boiling water and stand for 2 minutes. Drain. Put peas and mint in a food processor and pulse until peas are roughly chopped.
2 Whisk eggs and milk together in a jug. Put flour in a bowl. Add egg mixture to flour, whisking until well combined and a smooth batter forms. Add pea mixture, green onion, haloumi and parmesan. Season with salt and pepper. Stir until well combined.
3 Pour enough oil into a non-stick frying pan to cover base of pan. Put over medium heat. When oil is hot drop 2-tbsp spoonfuls of mixture into pan, frying 3–4 fritters at a time. Fry for 2–3 minutes or until golden. Turn and fry for a further 2 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a baking tray and put in oven to keep warm. Fry remaining fritters.
4 Serve fritters with mint leaves (extra) and lemon wedges.
