Method

Tip flour into a bowl. Make a well in the centre, break in eggs, then gradually whisk together, adding milk, a little at a time, to make a smooth batter. Stir in courgette and season well. Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add tablespoons of mixture to make fritters, and cook for 2-3 mins on each side until lightly golden. Serve with sweet chilli sauce.

Lovely - added some chopped mint and parsley and served with an olive and sun dried tomato cheese grated. I will make again and I am going to try with some Indian spices to flavour and serve with hummus.

Rated as 4 because the recipe itself is bland. Great base to invent something new from though. Love the idea of adding feta. I personally would also make 8 small fritters rather than 4 larger ones as they can be a bit stodgy in the middle.

Courgette Patties: Grate a large courgette. Get rid of excess moisture by adding 1.5 tsp of salt to grated courgettes and squeezing hard in your hands over a colander with a bowl underneath. You'll be amazed how much liquid comes out. Mix a beaten egg with 50g flour and then add the courgette. Add flavour with lemon/lime zest, freshly ground black pepper, 2 cloves of garlic (minced) and plenty of chopped fresh coriander or parsley. Form into small patties. Fry in olive oil - about 4 minutes either side or until browned. They will be moist and flavoursome. Serve with fresh salad leaves, wedges of lemon or lime and homemade salsa.

These are yummy. They need plenty of seasoning if served on their own. Alternatively they make a great mid-week veggie tea if served with grilled halloumi and a nice salad.
