Prawns are a time-honoured party starter and sweet potato is the root vegetable of the moment. Bring these two together in a piping-hot fritter and you have a fabulous time on a platter faster than you can say “mojito”. (Which admittedly doesn’t take long to say, but then again, these little flavour-packed packages don’t take long at all when you whizz them in the Thermomix prior to frying.)
If you’re not big on frying things while you’re in the midst of host duties, recipe creator from TMix+, Lesley Russell’s, shared her tips:
- always test both the temperature of oil and the taste of the mixture before you start frying.
- Ease one spoonful of mixture into the oil—it should bubble quickly and brightly, but not furiously. Not hot enough, and you will have soggy fritters; too hot and they will be over-browned and raw in the centre.
- Taste the fritters for the seasoning level at the same time and adjust if need be.
