  • 1 cup (250ml) milk

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tablespoon hot English mustard

  • sea salt and cracked black pepper

  • 2 cups (300g) shredded slow-roasted lamb shoulder (see basic recipe)

  • 2 cups (80g) finely shredded cavolo nero (Tuscan kale) leaves

  • 1 cup (120g) frozen peas, thawed

  • ½ cup finely chopped chives

  • ¼ cup chopped mint leaves

  • ½ cup (125ml) extra virgin olive oil

  • lemon wedges, to serve

  • store-bought tomato relish, to serve

Method

  • 1.

    Place the flour, milk, eggs, mustard, salt and pepper in a large bowl and whisk until smooth. Add the lamb, cavolo nero, peas, chives and mint and mix until just combined.

  • 2.

    Heat a little of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat.

Notes

TIPS
They’re best served hot and crispy from the pan, but you can keep them warm in an oven preheated to 140°C (275°F) while you make the whole batch.
