Chop the cabbage finely and cook it. I did mine for 4 minutes, with a tblsp of water, in a covered dish in the microwave.
Add the slightly cooled cabbage to the flour and stir in enough water to make a batter. Heat a large frying pan with half the oil and drop in spoonfuls of batter. Cook gently until the top side has set, then flip over and add the remaining oil. Cook until crisp on both sides and serve immediately with the chilli sauce drizzled over
If you are not following meal plan 8, the cabbage can be swapped out for any other vegetable that you want to use. Kale, or other dark green leafy veg, grated carrot, leftover garlicky roasted veg, peas, artichokes, mashed swede etc etc
