  • 3 large carrots, peeled, trimmed, coarsely grated
  • 1 large desiree potato, peeled, coarsely grated
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup fresh coriander leaves, chopped
  • olive oil, for shallow frying
  • 1/2 cup Greek style yoghurt, to serve


  1. Squeeze excess moisture from carrot and potato with hands. Place in a bowl. Stir to combine.
  2. Sift flour into separate bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk milk and egg with a fork in a jug until combined. Pour over flour. Stir until smooth. Add carrot mixture and coriander. Stir until well combined.
  3. Cover base of large, non-stick frying pan with oil. Heat over medium heat until hot. Using 1/4 cup of mixture per fritter, cook fritters, in batches, for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to wire rack over a baking tray lined with paper towel to drain.
  4. Meanwhile, combine yoghurt and mango chutney in small bowl. Place fritters on plates. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with coriander sprigs. Serve with a dollop of yoghurt mixture.
