Zucchini FrittersMike Reid
Recipe brought to you with the help of our friends at Velisha Farms
- 120g zucchini, coarsely grated
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 large free-range egg
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp plain flour
- 5 tsp ground cumin
- 50g frozen peas, thawed
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- Freshly ground black pepper
Mango Chutney Yoghurt
- 2 tbsp plain yoghurt
- 1 tsp mango chutney
- Season the zucchini with sea salt and set aside.
- Whisk together the egg, baking powder, flour and cumin in a large bowl and season with black pepper.
- Squeeze the excess water out of the zucchini over the sink, then add the zucchini and peas to the batter.
- Heat enough oil to just cover the bottom of a large frying pan, over a medium-high heat. When the oil just shimmers, drop in heaped tablespoons of the zucchini mixture, flattening them with the back of the spoon to make fritters.
- Fry each one for 1–2 minutes, or until golden-brown on each side. If you need to cook in batches in a smaller pan, set the fritters to drain on a plate lined with kitchen paper.
