Beetroot & Sauerkraut Fritters

Put the grated beetroot, sliced onion, garlic, sauerkraut, flour, curry powder, chili (is using), and salt in a large mixing bowl, add a little splash of water and mix well. This works best if you use your hands, though they will stain pink from the beetroot

Pour the oil into a deep frying pan. You’ll want about 2-3cm depth, then place over a medium heat. You can check the temperatur by dropping a tiny bit of the batter into the oil. It should fizz and crisp in about a minute

Take a tablespoon of the batter, gently place in the hot oil and press the top down to flatten them a little

Fry for 1-2 minutes before turning gently and doing the same to the other side

To serve, spoon the yogurt onto a serving plate, then arrange the fritters on top before scattering over a generous amoutn of the chopped mint
