Get grating

Roughly grate the courgettes and place in a colander. Squeeze out any excess water then place in a bowl along with the peas. Finely chop the spring onion and grate the garlic, adding both to the bowl.

Make the batter

Mix in the cumin, coriander and 1 teaspoon of the turmeric. Crack the eggs into the bowl and mix well with your hands. Sieve the flour and baking powder over and mix again until you have a batter then squeeze in the juice of half a lemon. It will be quite wet, don’t worry! Finally, crumble the feta and mix into the batter.

Pour half of the vegetable oil into a wide frying pan and heat. Using your hands shape a palm-sized portion of the batter into a disc around 1cm thick and place in the frying pan. Don’t overcrowd the pan so you may need to cook in batches, I normally cook 4 at a time. Cook for 3-4 minutes then flip over and cook for a further two. Remove the fritters to cool on some kitchen towel to absorb any excess oil.

Spoon the yoghurt into a bowl and add the remaining turmeric. Mix well before serving alongside the cooled fritters.
