Carrot Fritters
with Mustard Seeds & Mustard Sauce

Makes about 2 dozen 1-1/2" fritters

 

Crunchy, sweet, and savory, these fritters spice up any occasion and, served with a ginger-flavored mustard for dipping, make an enticing before-dinner appetizer.

  • 3 cups grated peeled sweet carrots
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro leaves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon white mustard seeds
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • oil for deep frying: pure olive oil, peanut oil, or canola oil
  • Honey-Ginger MustardSauce or Mustard Cream

Mix together all the ingredients except the oil until they are just combined. Be careful not to over mix. In a deep frying pan, bring about 1-1/2" oil to 350 degrees and drop in the batter, spoonful by spoonful, being sure not to crowd the pan and allowing a few seconds between each fritter to allow the oil to return to the proper temperature. Turn the fritters after one minute and fry until they are golden brown, about one more minute. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fritters to absorbant paper to drain. Continue until all the batter has been used. Serve the fritters immediately, with one or more of the suggested sauces.
