You can add any vegetables you want, it makes it easy to hide vegetables your fussy eater doesn’t like. If you add more just adjust the amounts of flour and spices.

Ingredients (serves 4 | makes 35 patties)

  • 2 zucchinis
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 cup sweet potato
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin
  • 2 large florets cauliflower
  • 1 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 3 eggs


  1. Grate all vegetables and place into a bowl.
  2. Add all spices, flour and eggs.
  3. Mix and place a good tablespoon size of mixture in a frying pan per pattie and cook until golden brown.

Notes... You could even use them as a party food and have toppings on them eg. Avo and fetta or any sauce to your liking (I like to use tomato chutney). You could even add a little more flour, roll and deep fry them.

  • These are always a winner in our house!


  • My oldest can be quite fussy so will have to give this a go. Love that it’s vegetarian. Thanks for sharing!


  • I wonder if my fussy 10 year old would give it a go… he hates Zucchini… However it maybe hidden enough in this that he would not even realise it is Zucchini.


  • Thanks for sharing; delicious!.


  • such a great recipe – love the combination of veggies. Will definitely try these.


  • I’m trying these this week – Thank you for posting!


  • A great way of using those odds and ends of vegatables to make something the children love to eat.

    • I don’t like any waste and using up vegies in good recipes is always a bonus!


  • Great! I guess you could bake them instead of frying them, right?


  • Patties are great especially left-over’s and the added chuntey sounds delicious!


  • These sound delicious and easy. I think my little one will enjoy them.


  • love patties – what is Kota?

    • It’s a spelling mistake I didn’t see until I posted. They are suppose to be “Kofta patties”. It was my experiment on a Kofta ball recipe my family makes but I added more veggies and I flattened them because I have a very fussy kid and she eats with her eyes


  • wow this is the best way to hide those vegies! lol. it is great!

    • cheers for posting this recipe. i love you suggestions there about topping it with some other things. that sounds fabulous!


  • Vegie patties are delicious and everyone likes them – thanks for this recipe.
