Categories: 1chiles, Vegetables
Yield: 4 servings

—————————–VEGETABLE PATTIES—————————–
1 1/4 lb Sweet potatoes
7 oz Carrots
12 oz Zucchini
1 Green Asian Chile or serrano
1 Scallion
2 tb Plain yogurt
Salt and black pepper
Vegetable oil; for frying

—————————-SPICY TOMATO CHUTNEY—————————-
4 Tomatoes
1 Red chile pepper; (1 to 2)
2 tb Chopped fresh mint
1 tb Cider vinegar
1 pn Sea salt

To make the chutney, roughly chop the tomatoes, finely chop the chiles,
then mix with the mint, vinegar and salt. Set aside until ready to serve.

To make the patties, first boil and mash the sweet potatoes. Trim and grate
the zucchini, sprinkle with salt, and set aside for 30 minutes to draw out
some of the juices. Drain and pat dry. Grate the carrots, seed and chop the
Chile and slice the scallion. Mix all the vegetables in a bowl, together
with the yogurt, salt, and pepper.

With floured hands, shape the mixture into 8 patties. Heat a shallow layer
of oil in a skillet and saute the patties for 4 minutes on both sides until
golden light. Serve immediately with the spicy tomato chutney. Serves 4.
