Pea Fritters are a traditional British food served up in Fish and Chip shops. I'm not sure if they are a southern thing but I suspect they are because whenever I have asked for these north of London I have just received strange looks.
In most Fish and Chip shops these aren't even vegetarian because they will be fried in the oil that has also had meat things fried in, but not all, ya just gotta ask the proprietor.
The main ingredient is mushy peas but not the tinned kind oh no siree the good old dried Marrowfat pea kind. They have to cooked and cooled then you just roll them into a ball, dip in batter and then fry 'em. This is the batter recipe I use which is also very good for making onion rings too.
1 cup flour
1 cup vegan breadcrumbs
1/3 cup white wine or apple juice
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
Enough oil to deep fry with.
Heat oil in saucepan. You can also use a deep fryer if you have one.
Mix flour, wine or juice, and vinegar. Add enough water till you get a sticky, gooey batter. Add as much pepper as you desire.
