Ingredients (makes 4 servings):

  • 4 courgettes
  • 6 spring onions (finely chopped)
  • 250g feta cheese
  • 1 small bunch fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon of dried mint
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 140g gram (or plain) flour
  • Salt & pepper to taste                   
  • 3 large eggs (beaten)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil (for frying)
  • 1 lime

 

Directions:

  1. Grate the courgettes with either the grating blade in the processor or by hand.
  2. Spread the little shards out on a tea towel and leave for about 10 minutes to get rid of any excess wetness.
  3. Put the chopped spring onions in a bowl and crumble in the feta. Stir in the chopped parsley, mint and paprika.
  4. Add the flour and season well with salt and pepper. Gradually add the beaten egg and mix thoroughly before stirring in the drained, grated courgettes.
  5. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and drop heaped tablespoons of the mixture into the hot oil, flattening the little cakes down with the back of the spoon as you go.
  6. Cook for about 2 minutes each side until golden, and then transfer to a couple of waiting plates.

Serve them as snacks, appetizers or a side dish; spritzed with lime juice & garlic sauce as you go. These go great with stews too!
