2 Spray a large pan with oil and set over a medium-high heat. Cook spoonfuls of fritter mixture for about 5-6 minutes each side, until golden and cooked through. Keep warm in oven until all fritters are cooked.
3 In a bowl combine tomatoes, remaining capsicum, coriander and vinegar. Add chilli flakes, if using. Season with salt and pepper.
4 Divide fritters between 2 serving plates and serve with fresh salsa and yoghurt drizzled over.
