The creamy, tasty inside and lightly crispy outside make these Creamy Garlic Potato Fritters the ultimate app or vegetable side!


  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 3 tbsp parsley and cilantro, chopped
  • 3 tbsp onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • salt and pepper
  • flour for coating
  • oil for frying (olive oil recommended)


  1. Peel, chop and boil potatoes in lightly salted water until they are tender but still firm. Drain then mash the potatoes with a potato masher or fork.
  2. In a bowl, combine the eggs, parsley and cilantro, onion, garlic, cumin, turmeric, and salt and pepper.
  3. Mix well then add to the reserved potatoes. Stir well to make sure the potatoes have absorbed all the flavors.
  4. Form 3” fritters and delicately toss them in flour so that they are lightly coated.  Carefully dust off any excess flour. 
  5. In a large nonstick skillet, heat about 2″ of oil over medium high heat. Add the fritters in batches. Once golden, flip and cook until both sides until golden and crispy.
  6. Drain on paper towels then enjoy!


No need to dip these fritters in eggs before coating them in the flour because they are moist enough to take on a light coating of the flour.
