Roasted Veg Bhajis

Updated: Feb 26, 2021

I saw a picture of DoctorBowl's Sweet Potato Bhajis on Instagram and thought they looked tasty, so I ran with it and came up with these (matching pantry and tastes at our house). I didn't make them too hot so that Little One could have some, so I spiced them with warming instead of hot spices, and a few different vegetables. I served them up in wraps with some hot sauce, yogurt or home-made mayo, roasted fennel and tomatoes.


3 sweet potatoes

1 carrot

1/2 celeriac root

2-3 tbsp olive oil

1/2 zucchini, chopped

3/4 - 1 c flour

1 tsp fenugreek powder

1/2 tsp orange curry powder

1/4 tsp cloves

1 tsp cumin

1 c bread crumbs

Salt and pepper to taste

1) Roast the sweet potatoes, carrots and celeriac in 1-2 tbsp olive oil at 200°C for 20-30 minutes until tender.

2) Mash up with the chopped zucchini (you may need a hand blender for this) and mix in all ingredients except the bread crumbs and remaining olive oil. Check for spice and seasoning. You could add fresh coriander or some chilis or paprika here.

3) Form into patties, roll in bread crumbs and fry over medium heat until browned and warmed through. Serve up with a salad, as a side or in wraps.

I loved these! I will definitely try variations of this again. I enjoyed them on their own and in wraps, with or without roasted turkey. A little coconut and banana hot sauce and fresh, home made sage mayo added a beautiful touch!
