Spiced swede fritters

The mild flavour of the swede is great with vibrant spices, so this twist on Indian vegetable pakoras really works well.
1 swede (about 650g), peeled and diced into small chunks
75g plain flour
100ml crème fraiche
1 egg, beaten
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp garam masala
½ tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp crushed coriander seed
small handful coriander chopped
sunflower oil, for frying
mango chutney, to serve
1. Cook swede in a pan of boiling water for 10 minutes until tender, then drain well. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, crème fraiche and egg to make a smooth, thick batter. Stir in the chilli, onion, spices and coriander, then season generously. Very roughly mash the swede and stir into the mixture.
2. Heat a splash of the oil in a non stick pan and cook small, flattened spoonfuls of the mixture for 2 minutes on each side until crisp and browned. Serve with hot chutney
