A great way for the kids to eat vegetables (and they will truly love them) plus you can add any herbs or vegetables and any cheese you fancy.

- 225 g/8 oz self-raising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 eggs

- 1 tsp. mild curry powder
- 2 spring onions, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp. finely chopped parsley or coriander or both
- 2 tbsp finely chopped mint
- 200 g/7 oz feta crumbled
- Olive oil
In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, pepper and carry powder. Create a well in the middle and add the eggs and milk, whisk to combine. Add the drained sweetcorn, spring onions, herbs and feta cheese, rest for ½ hour.
Heat a large frying pan, on medium heat. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil and spoon about 2 tablespoons of the mixture for each pancake, cooking in batches. Use 1 tbsp of oil for each batch.

Place them on kitchen paper and repeat with the rest of the mixture.
