Ingredients

5-6 small firm zucchinis, grated (makes  about 4 cups)
3 eggs
1/3 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
2-3 tbsp chopped fresh mint
3-4 spring onions, finely chopped
1 tbsp paprika
salt
black pepper
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup olive oil for frying

Method

Put grated zucchini in a colander.  Sprinkle with salt and let drain for 10 minutes.

Wrap in a clean tea towel and squeeze to get all the juices out then place in a bowl.

Add the other ingredients except for the flour and frying oil and mix well.

Add flour in slowly and mix well.

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Drop scoops of the mixture into the hot oil. Make sure they don’t touch.

Fry them on each side until golden brown, about 4-5 minutes.

Drain excessive oil by placing fritters on paper towels or greaseproof paper.

Suggestion

Serve with plain yogurt or garlic yogurt sauce.
