Sweet Potato Fritters

    10 -12 Sweet potato fritters full of herbs with a delicious smoky chilli kick. Tastes great with homemade hummus. My recipes consist of ingredient found in my cupboard so can be made anytime without hunting around specialist stores for expensive special ingredients. A very easy to make dish which can be served as a snack or accompany a main dish.

    • 3 Medium-Small Sweet Potatoes
    • 4 Dessert Spoons Plain Flour
    • 1 Egg
    • 3 Dessert Spoons Frozen Chopped Corriander
    • 2 Dessert Spoons Dried Chives
    • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Chipotle Chilli Flakes
    • 1 Teaspoon Cumin Seeds
    • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
    • 1/2 Garlic Granules
    • 1/2 Black Pepper
    • 1/2 Smoked Paprika
    • Optional 4 Dessert Spoons Grated Hard Cheese


    1. Preheat oven to 200°C Fan. Lightly grease a couple of baking trays with sunflower oil and place into oven once temperature has been achieved.
    2. Peel and grate the sweet potatoes into a large bowl. Try to squeeze some of the juice from the grated potatoes.
    3. Add the corriander, chives, chipotle chilli flakes, cumin seeds, salt, garlic granules, black pepper and smoked paprika into the bowl. Mix together using your hands working the ingredients together.
    4. Beat an egg in a small bowl and add to the mixture, blending the ingredients with your hands once again.
    5. Finally add the plain flour and mix together using a metal spoon until all ingredients begin to bind together. This is the point you can add the grated hard cheese.
    6. Remove the heated baking trays from the oven. Mould the mixture into balls and press them in your hand into 5 - 6 cm diameter patties, the grated potato should be tightly compacted, and place onto trays. Brush top surface with sunflower oil.
    7. Place in oven and bake for a total of 45 mins until brown and crispy turning them once after about 30 mins to brown the other side. The sugar from the potatoes may burn slightly but adds flavour to the fritters.


    Frozen chopped corriander is homemade. Fresh corriander blanched, chopped and frozen, sealed in a zipbag. Still has the same amount of flavour as fresh chilled corriander but reduces food waste as this can survive in your freezer for months for use anytime. It also retains its greeness when defrosted.
