Vegetable Fritters

‘Fritters’ generally is any food coated and deep fried. In India, they are often referred to as Pakoras or Bhajias. Among all the fritters Onion, Spinach and Potato ones are quite popular. I have used different kinds of vegetables and eggs in this recipe.It is a nice way to get a good serving of vegetables for children. You can deep fry in Olive Oil, instead of regular oil for a healthier version.

Veggies needed: You can use any or all or your choice of veggies.

3 potatoes
2 carrots
2 Yams/sweet potatoes
1 yellow or green squash
½ Bell Pepper
Salt to Taste
3 Tbsps all purpose flour
3 eggs lightly beaten
½ tsp cumin powder (optional)
½ tsp turmeric
½ tsp paprika (optional)

Finely grate all the veggies. Place it in a sieve and sprinkle some salt. Put it aside for 15 mts. Squeeze out all the water, as much as possible. Combine the flour, eggs and the veggies.

Heat oil in a wok. To test the oil, drop a small amount of mixture and if it rises to the top, the oil is ready! Take a measuring tablespoon or using your hand, drop small piles of the mixture. The fritters should be golden brown on both sides. Fry a couple at a time (depending on the size of your pan), until all the mixture is completed. Drain the fritters on a paper towel. Drain out the excess oil. Serve Warm. It is best served with Chutney/Relish.
