Potato, Carrot & Onion Patties w Chilli & Coriander

Potato, Carrot & Onion Patties w Chilli & Coriander
This is my type of comfort food, and quite simple and quick to make. This recipe makes 3 to 4 patties, depending on the size. I used food rings to help me make them a bit tidier than I would do without, but if you want to go for squares, don't let the rings stop you! ;-)
Cuisine: vegan
Recipe type: Patties!
Serves: 1-2
Prep time: 
Cook/wait time: 
Total time: 
You need
  • ½ cup grated potato (personally, I usually don't bother with peeling)
  • ½ cup grated carrot
  • ¼ cup grated onion
  • ~80ml organic white spelt flour (or any flour you prefer)
  • salt to taste
  • ⅛ tsp chilli powder (or more if you like)
  • a small hand fresh coriander, finely chopped and some extra to serve
  • ½ tsp baking powder (try to buy aluminium free)
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely grated (or use paste)
  • water (you won't need more than ¼ cup)
  • coconut oil to fry (about 1.5 tbsp)
To do
  1. mix the grated potato, onion, garlic, optional salt, baking powder, coriander and carrot together in a bowl
  2. add the flour, mix well - let sit for a few minutes so the flour can absorb some of the moisture
  3. start adding water bit by bit till you have a thick 'batter' that sticks together (if you add too much water, add more flour)
  4. heat the oil in a skillet (medium high) and scoop the batter in the hot oil, using a food ring or without, flatten out a bit so the patties are about ½ to ¾ cm thick
  5. after a minute, turn heat down a little bit, and flip patties over when bottom side is brown - the middle will have started to become a bit drier too by then (if they aren't dry enough to flip over, leave them a bit longer)
  6. bake until brown and you're done. I served them with more fresh coriander and Tofu Mayonaise :-)
Notes
If you make more and have left overs, they are fine to reheat the next day, or take them with you for lunch :-) Oh, and using the food processor to grate saves you some time :-)
