I am going to try as many courgette (vegi) recipes as possible. growing them for the first time, I advise people to grow them as they are so easy

Had to add an egg to get them to stick together. A very pleasant tasty dish.

The courgettes have to be really fresh otherwise then they to be water drained, as the older they get the more watery they are, before mixing in the batter

I've made these loads of times with no problems! Try beating all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon until they form a dough like ball then shape into patties and use a non-stick pan.

Not successful at all despite following the recipe to the letter. Will not be making another attempt.

I also found them very disusting. I had to through all of it away, because I didn't manage to get them to stick together. I wouldn't try them again. Just with an egg and another recipe

I couldn't get these to stick together - added an egg which was more successful but would look for a different version to try next time.

These were very nice, however they do need care when you fry them. A non stick pan is a MUST and you have to make them much smaller than you expect. I would definately recommend that you try and squeeze as much water out of the courgettes as you can.

I tried to make these and they were disgusting! They fell apart and were really watery - didn't cook properly either. Ended up chucking them away. Surely they need some egg to bind them? I'm sure I followed the recipe exactly but perhaps I should have salted the courgettes first to draw out the moisture? Anyone got any pointers where I went wrong? It's really unlike a GF recipe to be so unsuccessful.
