Pumpkin & parmesan fritters

Method

  • Cook the pumpkin in lightly salted boiling water until just tender. Drain well. 
  • Then mix the pumpkin with 200 gm bread flour, 60 gm grated parmesan, the basil, seasonings and garlic. Knead until smooth and set aside to cool a little.  
  • When ready, form the pumpkin mixture into about 12 balls using wet hands, dusting with extra flour if needed. Flatten them out a little and panfry in a layer of hot fresh oil until golden. Drain well on kitchen paper towels. 
  • Sprinkle the fritters with extra parmesan before serving.
