Carrot and curry patties

Carrot and curry patties

A very simple idea that can be served as a side or as a vegetarian burger

If you prefer a vegan option, just substitute the egg for boiled potato

A friend asked the other day for carrots recipes as she got too many from her Fruit and Vegetable delivery. Serendipity, I had a lot too and was planning to write about it. I will write more blog posts with other carrot recipes but I wanted to share this one as it was a kind of experiment that worked very well. My husband and I really enjoyed these carrot patties for dinner last week!

This recipe works very well as a side for a main course, fish or meat. Also, it´s a nice carrot burger meal if you put it in a bun with some pickles and the mayonnaise.

This recipe is part of the “Use Your Pantry” series during the lockdown due to the COVID-19 crisis. The ingredients in these recipes are simple, so the techniques, as the idea is to make the most of we have in our fridge to avoid going out. Also, it makes easier for everybody to try them as no everybody may have “fancy” ingredients.


– 600 g carrots 🥕

– 1 egg 🥚

– 50 g bread crumbs 🍞

– 1 teaspoon Curry powder

– 1 teaspoon Turmeric

– A pinch of salt 🧂

– Mayonnaise

– Sunflower oil


You can serve with mayo with turmeric or a chili sauce.

For a carrot vegan burger, I suggest you substitute the egg for a boiled potato so you will get a moist texture. Check the consistency as with the potato maybe you will not need the breadcrumbs.
