What’s for dinner

Cooked up some carrot and coriander fritters with green yogurt sauce for dinner. Quick, healthy and rather tasty 🙂



Recipe (from Leiths vegetarian bible)

2 eggs

85ml milk

15g melted butter

100g plain flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1/2tsp tumeric

pinch of cayenne pepper, pinch of salt

340g grated carrot

2 tsp coriander seeds

6 spring onions

3 tbs chopped coriander

oil for frying 

1. Beat the eggs, milk and melted butter in a bowl add flour, baking powder, cumin, turmeric, cayenne and salt. Beat again.

2. Dry the grated carrot in a tea towel. Add to the batter along with coriander seeds (I didnt have any), spring onions and fresh coriander.Image

 3. Heat the oil in a shallow frying pan and place 4 large spoonfuls of the batter into the oil. Fry fritters for 1 1/2 minutes on each side. I used my sandwich toaster. Less oil!


For a dressing you can blend natural yogurt with spring onions, fresh ginger, jalapeno chillies, fresh mint and coriander. Pinch of sugar and salt to taste. Whizz up with a hand blender and chill before serving.
