Taro fritters


For the Fritters

2 Taro (Peeled and cubed)

2 spring onion (sliced)

2 cloves of garlic

1 tsp Italian herbs

1 tsp lemon juice

3 tbsp cornflour (to coat the fritters)

Salt and pepper to season

For The Salad

1 cucumber

10-15 cherry tomatoes

A big handful or mint

1 Tbsp lemon juice

Drizzle of oil of your choice

Salt and pepper to season

Step 1

Put the diced Taro in a pan of boiling water and let simmer for 5-10 minutes until soft.

Step 2

Combine sliced cucumber, tomatoes, mint, lemon juice and oil in a bowl. Add salt and pepper and mix well, then set aside in the fridge.

Step 3

When the Taro is cooked drain the water and make sure they are really dry (give them a good old shake). Then mash them with a fork in a bowl.

Step 4

Add garlic, spring onion, lemon juice, Italian herbs to the mashed taro and season well. Mix all together so the ingredients are spread through the mash.

Step 5

Put the cornflour onto a plate, ready to coat the fritters.

Step 6

Roll the mash into balls slightly smaller than a ping pong ball, then with your palm flatten them on a chopping board to make patties.

Step 7

Coat each patty with the cornflour and shallow fry until golden on each side.

Step 8

Get your cucumber salad from the fridge and plate up, serve with your favourite sauce for dipping! (I chose Teriyaki)
