Greece - Kolokythokeftedes

Or in English, Fried Courgette Fritters. These fritters are often served as meze along with some tzatziki to dip.


Ingredients:

2 cups grated courgettes

1/3 cup feta

1/3 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon parsley

1/4 teaspoon oregano

1/4 teaspoon dill

salt & pepper



Several hours before you want to make these fritters, grate the courgettes and leave them to drain over a bowl to reduce the moisture in them.



I came back to my grated courgettes and saw that no moisture had dripped out of them so I squeezed them with kitchen roll to get rid of excess moisture. When they're as dry as you can get them add the herbs, feta, salt and pepper to the bowl and mix well.



Make small balls of the mixture and roll in the flour. Keep going until you've used all the mixture. 

 

 

Place the balls in a pan with some oil, shallow fry until crisp and brown on the outside but still soft in the middle.




Drain on kitchen towels and serve with tzatziki.



I really enjoyed these, they had a lovely flavour and went really well with the tzatziki. My mixture was still a bit too wet and they didn't hold together perfectly but they still worked. I liked that they had a crunchy crisp exterior but a creamy soft middle. Very nice!
