- In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin, rosemary, fennel, pepper and 1 lightly beaten egg.
- Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium. You’ll need to cook in batches. Spoon 1/2–cupfuls of pumpkin batter into pan. Flatten to roughly form 8–10cm round rosti. Cook for 5–6 minutes. Carefully flip over. Cook for a further 2–3 minutes, or until golden. Repeat to make 8 rosti.
