Ingredients

  • 500g/16oz potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 200g/7oz firm tofu, patted dry and crumbled into small pieces
  • Handful of fresh spinach or rocket, roughly chopped (or use frozen, defrosted)
  • 3 tbsp gram (chickpea) flour, mixed with 3 tbsp warm water in a small bowl
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tsp cumin or caraway seeds
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1-2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (optional)

Instructions

  • Pat dry the tofu, before crumbling it into a mixing bowl with the grated potato.
  • Add the spinach or rocket, gram flour mixture, cumin, plain flour, salt and pepper and stir the ingredients.
  • Shape the mixture into 6 round rosti, be firm with it but try not to over handle. If it is too wet to hold its shape, add a little more flour.
  • Add a little oil to a large, non-stick frying pan and fry on a medium heat, turning half way through, until golden. Press down the rosti and encourage them to keep their shape using a fish slice.
  • Serve with a small side salad or leaves and tomatoes and a tablespoon of hummus (optional).
