Description

These crispy egg fritters are perfectly deep-fried to perfection. Soft, airy, and fluffy on the inside, this is my twist on a Syrian classic.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 7 eggs
  • 3 small bunches parsley
  • 1 large or 2 medium carrots
  • 2 medium-sized onions
  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp 7 spices
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried coriander
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Oil for frying

Instructions

  1. Blitz the carrots, onion, and garlic in your food processor until they're cut into little pieces. Chop the parsley. Set aside.
  2. Beat the eggs, flour, and spices with an electric whisk until light and frothy. 
  3. Add in the parsley and chopped vegetables and mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Heat your frying oil and scoop the batter into the oil in batches. Fry until golden.
  5. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. 

Notes

  1. Make sure your oil is very hot before you deep fry the fritters. 
  2. Don't overcrowd your pot. 
  3. Serve immediately.
