Serves: Four
Time: 45 minutes


  • 2 large beetroots, grated
  • 2 large carrots, grated
  • 1/2 yellow onion, grated
  • 1/2 cup (75g) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • a few sprigs of fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • vegetable oil, to shallow fry


Place grated beetroot onto a paper towel and pat dry. Repeat with the grated carrot.

In a large bowl, combine the flour and cumin. Add in the carrot, onion, coriander, mustard and egg, combining well. Gently stir in the beetroot.

Using a large frying pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Place a tablespoonful of the beetroot mixture into the heated oil and fry in batches until crisp. Transfer cooked fritters to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.

Sprinkle with a little salt and serve.
