Apple & Potato Rosti Fritters


  • 2 medium apples, cored
  • 1 medium washed potato
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  • 1 spring onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, for cooking

To serve

  • 1/2 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 1 Tbsp chopped mint
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Honey, optional


  • Grate apple and potato into a large bowl. Add egg, onion, flour and salt, and stir until well combined. Divide into 12 portions, approximately 1/4 cup each.
  • Add a quarter of the oil (2 tsp) to a large skillet over medium heat. Drop 4 mounds of apple mixture into the pan and press tops gently with a metal spatula to flatten.
  • Cook 3 – 4 minutes until golden. Flip and cook a further 3 – 4 minutes. Move fritters to a paper towel-lined rack and repeat with remaining oil and apple mixture.
  • In a small bowl, stir together yoghurt, mint, and lemon juice. Season to taste with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Serve fritters warm, with mint yoghurt and a drizzle of honey.


  • For a sweet rosti, omit onion and stir 1/2 tsp cinnamon into the batter.
