Swede Fritters:


    • 1 swede, peeled and diced into small chunks (approx 650g)
    • 75g plain flour
    • 100ml crem fraiche
    • 1 egg
    • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
    • 1 red onion finely chopped
    • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
    • 2 tsp garam masala
    • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
    • 1 tsp crushed coriander seed
    • small handful of chopped coriander
    • sunflower oil
    • mango chutney to serve


  1. Cook the swede in a pan of boiling water for 15 mins until tender, then drain well. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, crème fraîche and egg to make a smooth, thick batter. Stir in the chilli, onion, spices and coriander, then season generously. Very roughly mash the swede and stir into the mixture.
  2. Heat a splash of the oil in a large non-stick pan and cook small, flattened spoonfuls of the mixture for 2 mins on each side until crisp and browned. Serve hot with chutney, or we like to have mint yogurt with the fritters, and mix up the spices with what you like most or have available
