Leftovers fritters

Whenever we have mashed potatoes we seem to end up with leftovers, I'm not sure if it's a comment on my mashing skills or if I just cook too much, but with leftover potato you have the beginning of some really nice fritters, although you could probably throw anything in the batter and it'd taste good!

Batter:

(all measurements are approximate, so feel free to mess around with it)
1/2 cup plain flour
1/4 cup cornflour (the thickener type)
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1 tsp baking powder
salt and pepper
a couple of cups of leftovers
a can of beer

mix together all the ingredients except the beer, stir in as much beer as you need to get a fritter consistency, fry in shallow oil, drink left over beer while cooking, add salad and crusty bread to the plate and enjoy!

The cornflour and rice flour give a crispy texture to the fritters, and stop them being so stodgy, and the beer gives a really nice flavour and helps the crispness too, you could substitute the beer with rice or soy milk if you are allergic to the idea of wasting cooking with beer!
