The goody bag I received on the Christmas Bus Tour contained a packet of this Kataifi Pastry. We were given a recipe to make some haloumi wrapped in the pastry. I decided to be a little experimental and put it to use with these fritters....because I din't have any haloumi, and too lazy to visit shops!
To make the fritter mixture, I raided my vegie garden...
In a small food processor, finely chop 1 onion, 1 red chilli, 1 small red capsicum and a handful of fresh herbs.
In a bowl beat together 3 eggs, with a splash of soy sauce, about 1/2 a cup of wholemeal flour and half a teaspoon of baking powder.
TO the egg mixture, add the chopped herby onion mix and the kernals cut from a cob of corn.
Then, with your pastry, make small round rings, and place into a lightly oiled pan.
Put a spoonful of the fritter mix in the centre of the pastry ring
flip over when browned on one side, and cook until done
You end up with a fritter surrounded by nice crispy pastry strands.
