Butternut Fritters

Butternut Fritters

You will need:
  • 2 cups (500 ml) cooked and mashed butternut
  • ½ cup (125 ml) flour
  • 1 t (5 ml) Ina Paarman's Masala Spice
  • 1 t (5 ml) baking powder
  • 1 extra large egg
  • canola oil for frying
  • 2 T (30 ml) white sugar
  • ½ t (2,5 ml) cinnamon
  • 1 lemon slice

Mix the butternut, flour, Masala Spice and baking powder. Stir in the egg to form a thick batter. Pan fry spoonfuls in moderately hot oil (about ½ cm deep) until golden-brown. Drain on kitchen or brown paper.

Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the fritters. Serve hot with lemon slices.

Ina's Tip

Depending on the moisture content of the butternut, you may have to add a little more flour (15-30 ml).
