Makes 12 fritters
Ingredients (serves 4)
600g zucchini (about 4), coarsely grated
1 small onion, grated
1 garlic clove, grated
100g Persian feta* or other marinated feta, drained
2 tbs each chopped fresh parsley and mint
1/2 tsp dried mint
1/3 cup (50g) plain flour
30g rice flour
1 tsp sumac*
2-3 tbs olive oil
Toasted Turkish bread, tomato wedges, lettuce and labne*, to serve
Place zucchini in a colander, sprinkle with salt and toss. Set over sink for 20 minutes. Squeeze well to remove excess water. Pat dry with paper towel.
Combine zucchini, onion, garlic, feta, eggs and herbs in a bowl. Add flours and sumac, then mix with a spoon.
Heat oil in a non-stick frypan over medium-high heat. Add 4 heaped tablespoonfuls of mixture to the pan and flatten slightly with an egg slice. Cook for 1-2 minutes each side until golden and heated through. Repeat twice more with remaining batter. Serve fritters with the bread, salad and labne for spreading.
* Persian feta and labne (yoghurt cheese) are from delis. Sumac is a lemony Middle Eastern spice from supermarkets.
