I love fritters! You can use almost every vegetable, in this recipe I used sweet potatoes. They are a perfect side dish or can be eaten as a main dish with a salad or some greens on the side.


  • 3 large sweet potatoes grated (on a box grater)
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. of cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp. of chili powder
  • Bunch of coriander
  • 250 gr. of chickpea flour (or plain)
  • 230 ml. of water
  • Large pinch of salt and pepper

Lemon yoghurt sauce

  • 250 gr. of Greek yoghurt
  • The zest and juice of half a lemon
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Mix all the above ingredients for the fritters together (only use the stalks of the coriander, finely chopped) until you have a thick smooth batter. Add a few more tablespoons of water if necessary.
  2. Heat a layer of olive oil in a pan until hot and add a large spoonful of the batter and flatten it out. Fry for about 3 minutes on each side and then transfer to a paper towel.
  3. Meanwhile make the lemon yoghurt by mixing everything together until smooth, taste to check seasoning!
  4. Serve the fritters with the lemon yoghurt sauce and the coriander leaves.
