Spicy Vegetable Fritters with Lime Yoghurt Dip

Spicy Vegetable Fritters with Lime Yoghurt Dip

Use up any leftover veg for this recipe. I like to use squash, pepper, asparagus, new potatoes, onions and green beans but you can also try aubergine, courgettes and even canned sweetcorn if it needs bulking out a little bit. It’s ready in minutes and is completely satisfying.
