If you follow the blog you will notice I enjoy making little cakes. You can call them croquettes or latkes it doesn't matter I enjoy eating and making them.
Might of been from my German grandmother who would make potato pancakes and would smother them with apple sauce. No matter what I still can't make a potato pancake like she did.
This is my own recipe so no links.
3 large carrots (around 3 cups)
1 small potato ( 1/2 cup- if you like potatoes add more)*
1/4 cup red onion
1/4 cup flour
2-3 tsp. chili- garlic sauce( Brand Tuong ot toi Vietnam- jar has roster on it)
Toss the carrots and potato in a food processor. You could grade the carrots and potato but I like a finer consistency.
When they were the consistency I wanted I added them to a large bowl.
Add the onion to the food processor and pulse. I made sure it was the same consistency as the carrot and potato.
Beat the 2 eggs in a separate bowl and add to the carrot, potato and onion. Sprinkle in the flour and add the chili-garlic sauce to taste. Cut up the green onion adding as much or as little as you like.
Use a medium pan and fry them in olive oil. I heat the olive oil and usually add a tsp. of butter to the pan.
When you see the edges of the fritter are done flip and fry for 2-3 minutes.
Drain on a paper towel.
I made a Jalapeno Relish which I topped a few of the fritters - very, very good!
* I added the potato because I had two left and needed to be used asap. I only got 1/2 cup and had to toss the rest.
