3 carrots, peeled, grated
2 green onions, finely sliced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 garlic cloves, crushed, finely sliced

¼ cup parsley, finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add the green onion, cumin, garlic, flour, and parsley. Mix well to combine.
Place the grated carrot onto a clean tea towel and squeeze the excess water out. You want to try and get as much water out as possible so the fritters stick together when cooking.Place the carrot into the bowl and mix well to combine.
Heat olive oil in a non-stick fry pan over medium heat. Using a tablespoon, spoon out the mixture and add to the fry pan. Cook the fritters for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden. Serve fritters with Greek yogurt and a squeeze of lime juice.
