Generally I am a fan of all things chilli! Chilli Bites are one of my favourite snacks. The only thing ‘chilli’ I don’t like is chilly weather.

I am glad that Summer has arrived and we can now head off to the beach with our picnic basket filled with little nibbly bits.
One of my favourite lazy day spots is the beach. Soaking up the sun, feeling the sand between my toes, listening to the waves beating on the rocks…sipping iced tea or an 1100 degrees Celsius”>2012/11/summertime-and-beer-shandy-thirsty-thursday-11/” target=”_blank”>ice-cold beer shandy and snacking on finger food.
I like to pack a fritter into the picnic basket as they can be made quickly and taste delicious when cold. Until I learned to make these at my 1100 degrees Celsius”>2012/10/cape-malay-culinary-experience/” target=”_blank”>Cape Malay cooking experience, I used to buy the Chilli Bites mix that you get at the shops. This is another quick and easy recipe I’ll be adding to my ‘Picnic Finger Food’ list.

Little fritters are ideal for picnics and just by adding different ingredients you can satisfy everyone’s taste buds.

“Bites” is a very fitting name for these little treats as they are bite sized and traditionally they are rather ‘hot and spicy’, giving it a bit of a bite. You can get the recipe by scrolling down to the bottom of the page.

      Hi Jennifer. You have the winter and snow for the festive season – that is lucky too. Our festivities are slightly different to the rest of the planet up north. No snow here and loads of heat, the less time spent in front of the stove the better. Enjoy…and thank you for your comment.
