Servings: 24Fritters - approximately
300gof sweet potatoes - peeled
30gof parmesan cheese
100gof tasty cheese
1tablespoonof onion flakes
2cups(300g) of self raising flour
salt and pepper to taste
Extra virgin olive oil for frying.
Grate the peeled sweet potato and place into a large bowl.
Add the crushed garlic, onion flakes, grated zucchini, tasty cheese, parmesan cheese to the bowl with the grated sweet potato and add the self raising flour before stirring well to combine.
Beat the eggs in a small bowl lightly with a fork and add salt and pepper to taste. Add the eggs along with ¼ cup of water to the bowl with the sweet potato mixture and stir. Gradually add the extra water and stir until you have a thick batter - please note you may not need all of the water depending on the size/water content of the sweet potato and zucchini that you used.
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium to high heat and use a ¼ measuring cup to scoop up the batter and place the fritter mixture into your pan. Use a spoon to gently spread the mixture into a circle between ½cm - 1cm thick. You should be able to fit approximately six fritters (or even more depending on the size of your pan) into your frying pan.
Cook the Sweet Potato Fritters for 5 minutes on each side until they are crisp and golden brown before transferring to a plate and covering them with foil so they stay warm while you cook the next batch. Repeat until all the fritters have been cooked.
