  • 3 ⅓ cups grated zucchini (courgette)

  • 6 spring onions, chopped

  • 1 bunch fresh dill, chopped

  • salt to taste

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Combine zucchini, spring onions, and dill in a large bowl. Stir in salt. Add egg; stir until well-combined. Stir in flour and garlic until batter comes together.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drop tablespoonfuls of batter into hot oil. Fry until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

The recipe can be adjusted to your own tastes. Other herbs, or a mixture of herbs, will work well if dill isn't your favorite - try mint, basil, parsley or chives. Likewise, the onions can be omitted, or you can use yellow onion instead.
