Carrot Scallion Fritters

3/4 cup coarsely grated carrot                                          1/2 cup thinly sliced scallion
1 large egg, beaten lightly                                                   1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs
vegetable oil for deep-frying

In a bowl combine well the carrot, the scallion, the egg, the bread crumbs, and salt and pepper to
taste. In a large skillet heat 1 inch of the oil until it registers 375F.  In batches, drop the carrot mixture into the oil by tablespoons, and fry the fritters for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or until they are golden. Transfer the fritters to paper towels and let them drain. Makes about 10 fritters. Gourmet November 1990
