These vegetable pancakes are bright with the bold flavors of ginger, coconut, and cilantro. We love them for breakfast, but they’re good anytime of day. Keep a bowl of water nearby and wet your hands while shaping the fritters to keep the mixture from sticking to your hands.

In a mixing bowl, combine the carrot, parsnip, ginger, garlic, as much of the chile as you like, and half of the cilantro with the eggs.
