Grated Carrot Fritters

The inside of these fritters goes nice and soft while the outside crisps up nicely in the pan. They go well on their own or as a side dish.

Ingredients:

  • 1 leek, washed and finely chopped
  • 3 tsp sunflower oil
  • 6 carrots, washed, ends removed and grated
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp plain flour

Method:

  1. Fry the leek in a tsp of sunflower oil in a large frying pan until soft. Keep the pan around, as you're going to use it again soon.
  2. Put the leek in a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Put the remaining oil in the frying pan and heat it up over a medium heat.
  4. Use your hands to form the carrot mixture into about 6 to 8 burger shaped pieces. Squeeze them with your hands to make sure they are compressed together.
  5. Fry for about 7 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned.
  6. Serve with some ketchup on the side.
Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a side.
