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
5ml baking powder
1 egg, lightly beaten
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.
