  1. Drop the potato into salted boiling water and cook for about 5 minutes, just until slightly soft. But not cooked. Drain and leave to cool.
  2. Fry the diced onion with the mustard seeds and garlic for a few minutes until the onions are soft.
  3. Add the turmeric, chilli powder and paprika. Fry for one minute. Add a splash of water if it is too dry.
  4. Add the crab meat, cook out until there is no liquid left.
  5. Take off the heat, use a box grater and grate the peeled potato into the crab mix.
  6. Season with the chaat masala.
  7. Divide the crab mix into 50g portions. Shape into a 'puk' shape.
  8. Pané the crabcakes by dipping them in flour, beaten egg and then panko breadcrumbs.
  9. Heat about a cm of sunflower oil in a large frying pan, you want the oil to cover half of the crabcakes. When the oil is hot, (you can test it by dropping a few breadcrumbs in, if it sizzles then it is ready) pan fry the crabcakes on both sides until golden and crisp.
  10. To make the pea pureé, drop the peas into boiling water with a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda. Boil for about two-three minutes on a medium heat. Be careful that the water doesn't bubble over.
  11. Serve the crab cakes with the pea pureé and garlic aioli.

As a youngster, I hit rock bottom and landed myself in a young offenders. I managed to turn my life around, became the first person to earn a Gold D of E Award behind bars and through this found my passion in cooking. I was taken on by Jamie Oliver, eventually started my own business and now find myself catering for royals and celebs. I use my love for food to spread joy and help others find purpose and change their lives. I mentor youngsters who have been in trouble with the law and regularly go back into prisons to share my experiences. I find myself being in a very fortunate position where I am able to do something I really love AND get paid for it!
