Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup coarsely grated carrot
  • 12 cup thinly sliced scallion
  • 1 large egg, beaten lightly
  • 13 cup fine dry breadcrumb
  • vegetable oil, for deep-frying

Directions

  1. In a bowl combine well the carrot, the scallion, the egg, the bread crumbs, and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. In a large skillet heat 1 inch of the oil until it registers 375°F on a deep-fat thermometer, in batches drop the carrot mixture into the oil by tablespoons, and fry the fritters for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or until they are golden.
  3. Transfer the fritters to paper towels and let them drain. Serve the fritters as hors d' oeuvres or as a side dish.
