Makes about 15-18 fritters


  • 5 large leave of kale, cored, washed, 2 cups of chopped kale leaves put through the food processor
    1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger root
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

    For the fritters:
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic
    Ground black pepper to taste
    2 tablespoons water
    2 large eggs (separate yolks from whites)
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    Oil for frying


  • 1. Combine kale leaves, ginger, ground cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and ground pepper in food processor. Pulse/process until all the kale is chopped up. Transfer to a medium bowl. If all the kale won’t fit in the processor at once, process in batches. Don’t over-process, you don’t want your kale to become a paste/puree. It should look like chopped leaves.
    2. Add water, flour, baking powder and egg yolks. MIX WELL.
    3. In another bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they hold peaks but are not too stiff. They’ll first get bubbly and then turn to a light fluffy foam.
    4. Fold egg whites (beaten) into the kale mixture.
    5. In a pan, heat up the oil on medium-high. (I started with a bit too much oil. Just a thin layer is enough, you can add more as you go.)
    6. Drop the kale batter in spoonfuls onto the hot pan. Fry for about 3 minutes on each side. The fritters should be a golden brown color. You can turn the heat down a bit once they get frying. It’s a pretty quick process. Add more oil as needed.
    7. When they’re done, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil.
    8. Serve with sour cream, a chutney or another dip of your choice.
