Easy Carrot Fritters

These easy carrot fritters use only five ingredients and are ready in 30 minutes. They make a delicious vegetarian starter, side dish or snack. Perfect on their own or dipped in yoghurt, chilli jam or any dip of your choice. The recipe makes six fritters but you could make them smaller to have more and serve them as canapés.


  • No curry paste? Try with chilli paste, curry powder or ground cumin. 
  • No coriander? Swap for parsley or rocket. 
  • No lemon? Try with lime instead.
