1. Place carrots in steaming basket then set basket in place inside bowl, along with 600g water. Cook for 15 minutes/steaming temperature/speed 4/MC on. Remove basket from bowl and set aside to cool while you make the salad. Discard water.

2. To make the salad, place lid on mixer bowl and set to speed 8. Through the hole in the lid, add turmeric, garlic, lemon rind, parsley and coriander. Leave blades running for 20 seconds. Add all remaining salad ingredients. Mix for 30 seconds/reverse/speed 1/MC on. Remove from bowl.

3. Into mixer bowl, place carrots, spring onions, paprika, coriander and eggs. Combine for 6 seconds/speed 5/MC on.

5. Place dukkah into a small bowl and coat both sides of each fritter with it.

6. Heat a large frying pan and add a good dollop of coconut oil to it. When it has melted, use it to coat the bottom of the frying pan then carefully place the fritters in (you may have to cook them in two batches). Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.

  1. Y-U-M!!! These have just the right amount of sweetness in the carrot and the Dukkah brings that savory/salty dimension. I did them in my Bellini and the recipe translated really well.

  4. The fritters are delicious. I had them wrapped in lettuce leaves and as sides to meat. Thanks for teaching me to try different flavours.
