Directions Step-By-Step

Rinse the tomatoes and finely chop them with a sharp knife. Place them in a bowl. Add the onions and the spring onions and stir until the tomatoes have wilted. Add the herbs (oregano, thyme, mint) and the cheese, egg, red hot chili pepper seeds, salt and pepper. Add the flour, a little at a time, and stir until you end up with a thick batter. If the batter is too thin, add a Tbsp of flour, a little at a time and stir to mix. Allow to rest for 30 minutes.
Warm the olive oil. Take heaped tablespoons of the mix and fry each for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Place the tomato fritters on a piece of kitchen paper to drain the excess oil. Enjoy!
