Potato and Kale Fritters

Hello everyone and happy Sunday!

Originally, when I was planning this recipe they were supposed to be pakoras but I didn’t get the consistency right and they looked more like fritters but still tasted really good. I’ve left the recipe for the rice down below.

Potato and Kale Fritters (serves 2/3)

Ingredients

125g gram flour or wholemeal

25g self-raising flour

1/4 tsp chilli powder

1/2 tsp garam masala

1/2 tbsp lemon juice

150g potatoes – peeled and cut into cubes

1 spring onion – finely sliced

Handful of kale

Oil – for frying

Method

  • Prepare the potatoes and in the meantime, place all of the dry ingredients in a bowl with the spring onion and kale, mixing well.
  • Slowly pour water into the flour mix until it is a runny dropping consistency, then add the lemon juice and set aside for 15 minutes.
  • Heat some oil in a deep pan and once the potatoes are cooked add to the mixture and combine everything together.
  • Once the oil is hot enough, keep it on a medium heat gently adding about 5/6 tablespoons of the mixture (depending of the size of your pan) and fry on both sides for about 5 minutes until golden and crispy.
  • You can serve them immediately or keep in the oven on a very low heat to stay warm.

Saltfish Fritters

I always remember my mum making saltfish fritters for dinner when I was much younger, it’s so cool now making them myself and they taste just as good.

The ingredients for fritters are very basic;
– self raising flour
– salt fish
– spring onions
It’s something easy to make especially if you don’t have a lot of food at home it’s like a super runny dumpling mixture and should fall straight off the spoon.I’ve added a bit of salad and sliced potatoe circles to make the dish more filling, its good to eat a variety of food in one dish because it means your body can get a great selection of nutrients.

They should be fried in hot oil for best results either in a frying pan or deep dutch pot. (A fryer works well too if you have one) I like to place them in the oven on a low heat once cooked to keep them warm.

They do take up a lot of oil so don’t eat to often 😛
