  • 6 courgettes (about 700 gm)
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 egg
  • 2 handfuls rocket leaves
  • 60 gm plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon creme fraiche
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pepper
  • vegetable oil for frying


    1. Peel and grate courgettes on the largest holes of a grater into a colander. Let courgettes drain 30 minutes.
    2. Thinly slice the onion.
    3. Using hands, squeeze as much liquid from the grated courgettes as possible.
    4. In a bowl whisk eggs, stir in the grated courgettes, the sliced onion, rocket leaves, flour, creme fraiche and mix well to make a thick batter. Season.
    5. Heat a non-stick frying pan and fry spoonfuls of the batter mix, cook pancakes 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through, transferring pancakes to a plate.

I didn't peel courgette and added plain yogurt as I didn't have creme fraiche. Also only left to rest for 15 mins. Worked out really nice...the whole family loved it:) Thank you.
