  1. Cook the potatoes and turnips in a large pan of boiling, salted water for 10 mins, then remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Bring the water back to the boil and cook the kale for 4 mins, then drain and leave to cool.
  2. When the potatoes and turnips are cool enough to handle, coarsely grate them and transfer to a large bowl. Squeeze out any excess moisture from the kale, then add to the bowl with the ground and chopped coriander and the flour. Mix and season well.
  3. Shape the mixture into 12 rostis. Heat the butter and oil in a large nonstick frying pan and fry the rostis in batches for 5 mins each side until golden. Stir the sweet chilli sauce into the mayonnaise and serve with the rostis.
