Vegetables can be more difficult for children to get accustomed to, as they tend to have more bitter, sour, and complex flavors. Children are learning to eat different foods, and getting familiar with eating vegetables is no different than developing a new skill, like riding a bike.
With a mild and sweetly spiced taste these Carrot Fritters are an easy way to add vegetables to your child’s diet. The kids will love dipping the fritters in their own individual yoghurt bowls. Check out our super simple recipe.
Ingredients For the fritters: 2 large carrots, peeled, trimmed and grated 2 eggs 125g plain flour 2 spring onions, minced or finely chopped handful of coriander, finely chopped juice and zest of ½ a lemon 1 tsp curry powder 1 tsp ground cumin salt and pepper to taste 1 - 2 Tbsp coconut oil for frying
For the yoghurt dip: 250ml of plain yoghurt 1 tsp curry powder juice and zest of ½ lemon
Method 1. Set the oven on a low temp (140C/275F/Gas Mark 1 should do it) 2. First make the dip by combining the yoghurt, curry powder and zest and juice of the lemon. Mix well and pop in the fridge until you are ready to serve 3. To make the fritters, combine all fritter ingredients in a bowl and mix well. You will have quite a stiff "batter" by the end of mixing 4. Spoon the oil into a frying pan over a high heat and bring to sizzling point 5. When the oil is sizzling, spoon a heaped tablespoon of mixture into the pan and press down/ shape into a fritter with the back of a spatula. 6. Fry until golden brown on one side, flip over gently and fry on the other. 7. When done, transfer the fritters onto a paper towel to blot any excess oil and then put onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Pop in the oven to keep warm while you make up the others 8. For the yoghurt dip, combine the yoghurt with the curry powder and juice and zest of the lemon. Stir well and serve with the fritters.
