Sweet Potato and Carrot Fritters

9 Jun

The perfect summer side dish! These are quick and easy to whip up, and very refreshing served with this yogurt-salsa sauce.

You’ll need:


  • 1 peeled and grated sweet potato
  • 1 peeled and grated carrots
  • 1 egg (2 may be needed depending on the size of your sweet potato/carrot)
  • 1/2 cornmeal / polenta (polenta works best)
  • several green onions, minced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 t curry
  • 1/2 t cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/3 cup yogurt
  • 1 T lime juice


  1. If you haven’t already, peel and grate your sweet potato and carrot
  2. Place in a bowl and add egg, polenta, green onions, garlic, curry, cumin, salt and pepper and mix with hands or a hand held mixture. You should be able to form these into slightly crumbly pancakes in your hand. If they don’t stay together, add another egg.
  3. Heat a pan to medium high heat and pour a tablespoon of oil in the pan until hot. Add each fritter in one at a time and cook for several minutes on each side.
  4. Finally, mix yogurt, lime and salsa together for the sauce. Serve with fritters and enjoy!
