  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C. Line a shallow baking dish with baking paper.
  2. Squeeze the grated kumara and carrot to extract excess moisture; place in a large bowl with the spring onion and dill. 
  3. Whisk the egg, cornflour, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Add to the vegetables.
  4. Heat sufficient oil to cover the bottom of a large frying pan. Divide the mixture evenly into 8 and press firmly (don't go lightly), to make a fritter about 1cm thick.
  5. Cook 4 at a time in the hot oil, using a spatula to press down on the fritters as they cook. Turn once they are golden brown and cook on the other side - only until brown. Transfer the fritters to the prepared baking dish.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven and cook for 15 minutes until the vegetables are tender.

Serving suggestion:
Serve warm with smoked fish, a dollop of sour cream and top with a little watercress or other small green leaves.
