1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1 cup milk
150g orange sweet potato, finely grated

Place cumin in a small frying pan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Combine yoghurt and half the cumin in a small bowl.
Place flour in a large bowl. Whisk egg and milk together in a jug. Whisk egg mixture into flour until smooth. Stir potato, onion, lamb and remaining cumin into batter until combined.
Pour enough oil into a large, deep frying pan to come 5mm up side of pan. Heat over medium heat. Spoon 1?4 cup batter into pan. Repeat 3 more times. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve fritters with spiced yoghurt and salad.
