  • 2 medium courgettes (approximately 400 g) (grated)
  • 4 spring onion (green part only, sliced)
  • 6 sprigs fresh mint (finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint
  • 2 tablespoon parsley (finely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoon dill (finely chopped)
  • 1 large egg (or 2 small eggs)
  • 4 tablespoon flour (60 grams)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • cup vegetable oil (for frying)


  • Grate the courgettes, place them in a colander, sprinkle with a little salt and leave to drain for 30 minutes.
  • Place the grated courgettes in a tea towel or absorbent paper towel and squeeze out excess water then transfer in a large bowl. 
  • Add the spring onions, fresh and dried mint, parsley, dill, egg(s), flour, salt, freshly ground black pepper and baking powder to the courgettes and mix well to form a thick batter.
  • Heat a large frying pan on medium heat and add the vegetable oil.
  • When the oil is hot, drop a heaped spoonful of the mixture into the hot oil and gently press to flatten it out a little. Depending on the size of your pan, fry 4 or 5 fritters at a time.
  • Fry for few minutes until they are golden brown then flip them using a spatula. Fry the other side for few more minutes and place them on a plate layered with a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
