4 large white potatoes - grated
1 large white onion - grated
1-2 cups flour
1-2 tbls oil (ricebran/olive/soy so long as it is light it doesn't really matter)
1 tsp corn starch
1 tsp lime juice
Fine ground black pepper
soy/rice milk or even water to mix
Oil to deep fry (soy/peanut etc)
Mix potatoes and onions in a big bowl. Mix cornstarch and oil to make egg substitute and add to potato and onion mix. Mix in some flour and stir until thick. Add a splash of "milk" or water. Add more flour and so on until you have mixed in at least one cup of flour and have a thick batter type mixture. Add a pinch of salt, the lime juice and at least a whole teaspoon of pepper, I use three, and stir through. The pepper should look like little "eyes". Deep fry fritters in a heavy based pan or deep fryer then serve hot with a splash of lemon or lime juice and lots of tomato sauce, with a simple table salad on the side. You may need to dip each spoon of mixture in some more flour before frying depending on how sticky your batter is.
I'm considering adding some yeast flakes for a cheese flavor but I've not done so yet and don't have any in the cupboard to try it when I make them for lunch today!
