  • 5 Roma tomatoes finely chopped
  • 1 red onion finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp parsley finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp mint finely chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 175 g flour plain (all purpose)
  • rice bran oil for frying **


  • Combine the tomatoes, onion, herbs, seasoning, olive oil and flour in a large bowl. The mixture will be like a very thick pancake batter. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes.
  • Depending on the size of your frying pan heat up enough oil in a pan to shallow fry the fritters. The oil is ready when it reaches 180 deg C on a thermometer.
  • Drop-in spoonfuls (using a dessert spoon or soup spoon is okay) of the tomato batter cooking a maximum of 3 fritters at a time. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side and drain on paper towels.
  • Sprinkle a little extra salt on top and serve with tzatziki or freshly squeezed lemon.


  1. I like to use rice bran oil when deep or shallow frying. It's quite neutral in taste and has a high smoke point.
  2. The calories do not include the oil used in frying
