Ingredients

  • 1 celeriac (about 750g)
  • 1½ tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 echalion shallots, very finely sliced
  • 2 echalion shallots, very finely sliced
  • 6 medium eggs, at room temperature
  • 4 heaped tbsp plain or gram flour
  • 1½ tsp ground coriander
  • 2-3 tbsp ghee or vegetable oil, to fry
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
For the herb yogurt
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander, plus a few sprigs, to serve
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped mint
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 200g Greek-style yogurt
  • zest and juice of ½ lime
  • ½ garlic clove, crushed (optional)

Step by step

Get ahead

Prepare and part-cook the rostis the day before. Fry for just 2-3 minutes each side, until golden and crisp, then cool. Chill, covered. Heat through on a baking tray in the oven for 15-20 mins at 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4.

  1. Peel the celeriac – it’s easier to do this by slicing the skin off with a sharp knife rather than using a vegetable peeler. Cut into chunks and grate coarsely (the grating attachment on a food processor makes this much quicker). Toss with a good pinch of salt and put in a colander set on a plate for 15 minutes to let excess moisture drain away. Meanwhile, toast the cumin and nigella seeds in a dry frying pan for a few minutes until they smell toasted. Remove from the heat.

    Tip

    Did you know?

    Celeriac is very low in calories: 100g is only about 30 calories.

  2. Squeeze the celeriac dry in a clean tea towel, then tip into a bowl. Mix with the shallots, two of the eggs, flour, toasted spices, ground coriander and seasoning. Divide the mix into 8 and flatten into patties with your hands.

  3. Mix the herbs and the yogurt, lime zest and juice, and garlic, if using. Season generously

  4. Heat 2 tablespoons of ghee in a large nonstick frying pan. Fry 4 of the rostis for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden and cooked through. Keep warm and fry the remaining rostis, adding more ghee if needed.

  5. Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to a gentle simmer, adding the vinegar. Break the eggs into separate cups. Give the water a swirl, then drop one egg at a time into the water, keeping them separate. Poach gently for 2½-3 minutes, then lift out with a serving spoon and briefly drain on kitchen paper.

  6. Serve 2 rosti per person, topped with a poached egg. Serve the herb yogurt and mango chutney on the side and garnish with extra coriander.
