Method

 
Mix the mashed potato and egg together. Add the flour, coriander, onion and chilli, if using. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add a little more flour if the mixture is still very soft. Set aside.

Put a thin layer of oil into the pan and then add spoonfuls of the potato mixture. Press down to flatten a little. Fry over a medium heat until golden on both sides. Remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper. Add a little more oil if necessary.

Serve the fritters with poached or fried eggs, crispy fried bacon and pieces of avocado.
