Greek Zucchini Fritters

These zucchini fritters are my staple food whenever I’m in Greece. The zucchini and mint marry perfectly and makes for a memorable snack, in-betweener, breakfast or dinner when served with a tzatziki sauce!! They also pair perfectly with any finger food on a platter or simply as a side to any meat dish.

250ml cake flour

2,5ml salt

5ml baking powder

1 egg, lightly beaten

100ml milk

a handful of mint leaves, chopped

500ml zucchini, grated

Add the flour, salt and baking powder to a mixing bowl.

Add the egg and milk to a jug and give it a good whisk.

Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture in a thin stream, beating continuously until the ingredients come together as a smooth batter.

Now add the mint leaves and zucchini and stir through.

Heat enough oil to deep fry the fritters at about 170℃.

Scoop a spoonful of batter into the oil and fry until golden. About 3 minutes. Continue until no batter is left.

Drain on kitchen paper.

Serve the fritters with a tzatziki sauce.
