Vegetable Fritters


Vegetables are good for our health but this is not the way to eat them :) I made these fritters on the spur of the moment just to use up the leftover vegetables that were sitting in the fridge (or maybe it's just an excuse). That's the problem with me, I sometimes buy too much.


The grated carrots in the plastic container would be good for another day or two and then there's the alfalfa sprouts that didn't make it into my salad. A bit of coriander leaves here and some long beans there and all these went into my mixing bowl.


Looks like I am making salad, but I'm not.
I added some minced onions, some chives from my garden, an egg, self-raising flour, seasoning, loads of pepper and water. No recipe, just chucking everything in and adjusting the flour and water as I went along. And I am now a pro at making vegetable fritters after making Corn and Vegetable Fritters



This time round, my fritters were even better, crispier and tastier. Oh, I love the crunch when I sank my teeth into the first one. Yums! I must have got about 12 to 15 (didn't count) fritters and of course I can't eat them all. The remainder went into the fridge and was reheated in the oven the next day. Fresh is always best but the reheated fritters were crispy and still tasted very good.



For the recipe, please refer here and feel free to make adjustments to suit the amount of your ingredients.

  3. Hi Phong Hong, I love vegetable fritters with corn, zuchini, french beans, beansprouts, yam, sweet potatoes etc... all are good on its' own and especially good with a light sweet/sour chilli sauce.
