  • Method
  • To make the fritters, put the grated courgette in a large mixing bowl and sprinkle with salt. Leave for 10 minutes. Drain off any liquid that has accumulated, then place the courgettes on a clean tea towel and squeeze out as much liquid as you can.
  • Put the courgette back in the bowl, add the flour and mix well. Now add the spring onions, feta, garlic, herbs, chilli and seasoning (go easy on the salt as you have already salted the courgettes) and mix once more. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.
  • Carefully drop spoonsful of batter into the oil, using about 2 tablespoons batter for each fritter and patting them down so they flatten slightly in the pan. Fry gently until golden brown on both sides. Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm until all the fritters are ready. Serve it Mango salsa or green salad….
