Carrot Fritters

Serves: 4

Preparation: 15 minutes

Cooking: 15 minutes



3 carrots, peeled, grated
3 eggs
2 green onions, finely sliced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 garlic cloves, crushed, finely sliced
¼ cup flour
¼ cup parsley, finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil

To Serve

½ cup Greek yoghurt
1 lime


Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add the green onion, cumin, garlic, flour, and parsley. Mix well to combine

Place the grated carrot onto a clean tea towel and squeeze the excess water out. You want to try and get as much water out as possible so the fritters stick together when cooking. Place the carrot into the bowl and mix well to combine

Heat olive oil in a non-stick fry pan over medium heat. Using a tablespoon, spoon out the mixture and add to the fry pan. Cook the fritters for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden. Serve fritters with Greek yoghurt and a squeeze of lime juice
