Real vegetarian food, served in an imaginary world...

And now the next instalment of the series entitled 'I Never Thought I'd See This Many Courgettes In A Lifetime, Never Mind In One Season', also known as 'Two Of Those Plants Are Coming Up And Going To A Good Home (Someone Else's Garden) Before Next Year'.

I do love courgettes; it's just that I seem to have had an awful lot of them lately. This recipe was a great success, though. Dave asked for it to be done again and he isn't really a fan of courgettes.

Serves 2 but can easily be multiplied

2 medium courgettes
75g self raising flour
1 small egg, beaten
100ml sparkling water
pinch chilli powder
oil for frying

Wash and dry the courgettes, then cut them into batons. Place them on absorbent paper and sprinkle with salt to season them and draw out some of the moisture.
Make the batter by whisking the flour, egg, water and chilli powder together.
Place the batons in the batter and coat well.
Heat the oil and fry in batches. (Don't worry about shaking off any excess batter before placing in the oil - it will add some lovely crispy edges).
Dry on absorbent paper and serve straight away.
