Method

  1. Blitz half the can of chickpeas in a food processor until smooth. With the motor running, add the eggs and milk, then sift in the flour and baking powder. Process until you have a lump-free batter. Fold in the whole chickpeas and chopped spring onions. Season and add half the harissa.
  2. Heat half the oil and fry the courgettes in batches until golden; keep warm in a low oven. Heat a little more oil and cook 2 tbsp-portions of the fritter mix in batches for a couple of mins, until you see bubbles appear, then flip over and cook the other side until golden. Keep warm with the courgettes.
  3. Toss together the courgettes, feta, mint and sliced spring onions. Divide between 4 plates and top each with 2 fritters and a dollop of yogurt swirled with the remaining harissa.

Fantastic! Very easy to make and we got a lot of fritters out of the mix. They don't have a very strong flavour though, so the courgette salad really complimented the dish - I don't think it'd work as well without the salad.

This was soooo good and not at all fiddly to make. The chickpea fritters were lovely but the courgette salad really stole the show. Can't wait to make it again.

Really quick and easy. A good, cheap student recipe.

This sounds tasty, is a little fiddly.
It would be helpful to have the ingredients listed for each component (like for the fritters..., for the salad ...) rather than 'half of ...' so that to avoid checking the quantities while cooking.
