Instructions

  1. Squeeze the grated carrot and courgette together in a piece of kitchen paper over the sink to get rid of excess moisture. Transfer to a large bowl with the pepper, sliced spring onions and curry powder. Drain the tofu on kitchen paper, then coarsely grate and add to the bowl.
  2. Spoon in the rice and, using a stick blender, blitz the ingredients to a coarse paste. Add the flour and egg, season and combine well.
  3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Divide the mixture into 12 patties and fry in batches for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper. Add the lemon wedges to the pan and cook for a few minutes on each side until slightly charred.
  4. Garnish the patties with the shredded spring onion and serve with the salad and lemon wedges.
