Ingredients

  • 3 medium Courgettes/Zucchini
  • good pinch Salt
  • 4 Spring Onions or a normal round onion, but use much less as they are stronger tasting
  • 1 small Chilli Pepper optional, and definitely avoid if making for kids
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 2 medium Eggs
  • 1 cup Plain Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder

(Or substitute Self-Raising flour for the Plain Flour and don’t add the baking powder)

  • Olive Oil For frying. Any oil can be substituted
  • Black Pepper for seasoning – Optional
  • 1 cup Natural Yogurt for serving

Instructions

  • Wash the courgette, trim ends and grate – either by hand or with a grater attachment in a blender. Tip – the latter will give a better looking end product!
  • Place the grated courgette in a colander in the sink.
  • Mix through a small handful of salt and leave. This will remove excess moisture from the courgette.
  • Thinly slice the spring onions and chilli.
  • Mince the garlic. Or in other words, chop finely!
  • You can blend the onion, garlic and chilli in the blender too (but not with the courgette!)
  • In a bowl, lightly beat the eggs.
  • Place a pan on the stove on a low heat, add some oil and leave to heat. (Watch though!)
  • After 10 minutes, wash the courgette thoroughly.
  • Press the courgette against the sides of the colander with your hand to remove excess moisture.
  • Tip the courgette onto a clean tea towel. Wring over the sink to squeeze out as much moisture as possible.
  • Place the courgette into a bowl.
  • Add the spring onion, chilli, garlic and beaten egg. Mix.
  • Sift in the flour/baking powder, add a pinch or two of salt and some black pepper if you wish – and combine thoroughly.
  • Spoon mix into medium-hot pan and press down lightly to flatten (they will cook quicker). You will cook in batches as you don’t want to overcrowd the pan.
  • Cook on one side until golden brown – approximately 3-4 minutes.
  • Turn over and repeat. If you find them browning too quickly, turn down the heat.
  • Once cooked, place onto a plate with draining paper, then transfer into a warm oven.
  • Repeat until all the mix is used.
  • Serve with a spoonful of yogurt as garnish.

Tip – The fritters will keep in the fridge and they freeze well. Simply place in a medium-hot oven to heat through and crisp and then serve!
