Potato fritters landscape close up final DC


When it comes to go-to recipes, I like them to be easy and delicious – these potato fritters satisfy both requirements.

This recipe has some spring onions thrown in for a little extra flavour, but apart from that all you need are literally potatoes, salt and pepper and some frying oil. This ‘recipe’ (hardly a recipe) is so easy you could literally whip it up in less than 30 minutes from now including preparation time.

These fritters are crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle and taste great served with a side salad and rice, then topped with a few avocado slices, some sambal or a spiced yoghurt. I generally also serve them with braised apple and cabbage.

Enjoy this simple recipe and let me know how you go!

Potato Fritters

Makes 10-11 medium sized fritters


2 large potatoes, grated

2- 3 spring onions, finely sliced

Oil for frying

Salt and Pepper


Drain the grated potatoes of all their juice (squeeze over the sink with your hands or use a linen tea towel)

Once you’ve squeezed out all the juice, place the grated potato in a bowl adding the spring onions and salt and pepper (10-12 shakes/grinder twists of each), and mix well

Heat oil in a medium sized frying pan (enough coverage for three to four fritters)

Measure out a heaped tablespoon of the potato mixture and place in frying pan (neaten into a round fritter shape using your spoon) and repeat with two to three more fritters in the pan at a time

Fry on one side for a few minutes until the bottom or underside of the fritter is golden brown, then repeat on the uncooked side

Once cooked transfer the fritters onto a plate lined with paper towel to absorb any excess oil (you will need to top up on oil while frying)

Repeat this process until all the fritter mixture has been used

Serve with your favourite sides, a little avocado with sambal or yoghurt and some fresh herbs like coriander, yum!
