Why do I love vegetable fritters so much? Probably because they're so easy to make and the varieties are endless. This version, which uses carrots and leeks as its main ingredients, is seasoned with some cilantro and coriander. But the key to a good fritter recipe is to use just enough egg and flour to bind them together without overpowering the flavor. —Vicky | Things I Made Today
