Cooking Instructions

To make the pealafels, place the chickpeas, peas, olive oil, lemon juice, spring onions, garlic, chilli, cumin, coriander in a bowl and toss.

Pulse in a blender until chunky. Add the baking powder and salt and mix.

Working with damp hands, carefully roll into small balls or discs and place on a lined baking tray, then chill for 30 minutes.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick pan and fry the balls in batches. Return to the tray.

To make the curry, heat the oil in a pan. Add the paste and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the baby marrow and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the coconut milk and fish sauce and simmer for 5 minutes.

Spoon the sauce into bowls and add the pealaffel. Garnish with basil, coriander, mint and spring onion.

Cook's note: Turn this recipe vegan by replacing the fish sauce with an equal measure (1 teaspoon) soy sauce and a generous squeeze of lime.
