Recipe type: Side dish
Serves: 5-6
Ingredients
  • 1 small celeriac, peeled and finely grated
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and finely grated
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cracked pepper
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes (optional)
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tbsp tapioca flour
  • Coconut oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Place a frying pan over high heat and put in the coconut oil and let it melt. For the fritters to be crispy it's better to use a bit more oil than you might be used to, but the pan should be equally covered in oil. And you would probably have to add a bit more oil for each batch of fritters as they soak some oil in.
  2. Use your hands to make little patties (not too thick) and place them carefully in the hot oil. You can also use spoon, I just find the hands easier, but be careful. After about 3 minutes of frying check the bottom of the patties and if it's nice and brown, flip them over for next few minutes.
  3. Little by little take your fritters out of the pan and place them in a baking dish lined with paper towels which will soak the extra oil out of them. Do not layer the fritters, try to place them next to each other.
  4. When you are done with the frying and all the fritters are in the baking dish, place it in a preheated oven on 175 °C (about 350 °F) for 12-15 minutes to make sure the centre of the fritters is cooked thru too.
  5. Take the dish out of the oven and serve the fritters.
