Dinner Wednesday 31 October 2007 - Edamame Fritters

Edamame Fritters
1 carrot, shredded
80g edamame soy beans, cooked
2 spring onions, finely sliced
1 tablespoon mirin
1 teaspoon 7 spice pepper
1 small egg yolk
100ml carbonated water
100g potato flour
½ tsp salt

Marinate the carrot, edamame & spring onions in the mirin & 7 spice for at least an hour.

Make a batter by combining the egg yolk, water, potato flour and salt. Add the vegetables to the batter and combine.

Spray a non-stick skillet with a little oil and place over medium heat. When the skillet if hot (a drop of water skitters across it when dropped), add the batter to the pan in small ladelfuls. Fry on one side until crisp and browned, about 5 minutes, then flip over and cook on other side.

Served with a sauce comprising 1 tablespoon each of mirin and soy sauce. plus some wasabi on the side.

These were OK - I was trying to recreate a sort of a deep-fried fritter feel without deep frying (and use up some potato flour I bought when i was trying to copy-cat Krispy Kreme).
