  1. Place the 2 jacket potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 mins – the potatoes should still be a little firm in the middle. Allow to cool.

  2. Peel the skin off the potatoes and coarsely grate into a large bowl. Add the grated sweet potato, goat’s cheese, cornflour, paprika and chives. Mix together until well combined. Shape tablespoons of the mixture into small cylinders with your hands.

  3. Fill a large frying pan with 2cm oil, and heat over a medium-high heat. Fry the tots in batches for 3-4 mins until golden and crisp. Serve immediately with some garlic mayonnaise for dipping.
