Celery Fritters recipe

Preparation Time: 15 minutes | Cooking Time: 10 minutes

This crisp veggie bites are the perfect way to use up celery. You can serve them with a sweet or savoury dip, or you can omit the cinnamon and add a different spice such as chilli powder - they're totally customisable!

Ingredients:

  • 4 celery sticks
  • 120ml milk
  • 200ml sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 150g plain flour
  • 10g brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 30ml oil

Directions:

  1. Whisk together the flour with the egg until smooth. Add the sour cream, sugar and cinnamon and whisk again, then gradually whisk in the milk until you have a smooth batter.

  2. Chop the celery sticks into chunks. Heat the oil in a frying pan until it starts to smoke. Dip the celery chunks into the batter then drop into the oil. Fry for 3 minutes until golden, then scoop from the pan with a slotted spoon. Drain of excess fat on kitchen paper.

You may want to blanch the celery before dipping into the batter as this will make it less crunchy and will mute the flavour a little; it's entirely up to you. Recipe serves 4.

Celery Fritters Review by Di Hay on 6th February 2015:

I used this recipe tonight, as there was a special offer on celery in the local supermarket. They turned out really well, and I shall use the batter recipe for other veg such as courgette when they come in season. I am not overkeen on cooked celery, but the recipe meant that they were only part cooked and remained crunchy, which I liked.
