Carrot Fritters

From  Tender,  by Nigel Slater.

Makes 6-8 fritters.

3/4 lb. carrots
med. onion
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 cup cream
1 egg
grated cheese- whatever you like, 3 heaping tbsps.
Cilantro leaves- roughly chopped
1 tbsp. flour
olive oil for frying

Grate carrots so that they are long, thin shreds. Finely slice onion and stir into carrots along with the garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in cream, beaten egg, grated cheese, cilantro and flour.

Warm olive oil in a pan. Drop large spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan, a couple at a time and fry until lightly cooked on the underside. Flip over- they should take 3-4 mins. per side. Eat immediately!
