These are for the time when you fancy carbs. When you want a tasty ‘carby’ accompaniment to a meal but don’t want to go mad. It’s far too easy to overload our plates full of carbs so these will help you to control that. They are also for those ‘nibbly’ times where you need something savoury. They are lovely straight from the oven, crispy with a subtle curried flavour.
This is no great complex recipe. They are simple to make and adjust to suit your own taste buds. You can add flakes of fish to make them into curried fish bites or add some chopped sautéed peppers and or even some mozzarella.
