The zucchini fritters with yogurt are soft and fragrant for the freshness of the erbs, ever-present throughout the Turkish cuisine. They are a quick and easy appetizer for those who usually do not like to fry like me, but I assure you these are always good. The Turkish cuisine is one of the best European cuisine, a meeting of Asian and Mediterranean cuisine, rich in spices and olive oil.

  • 1 medium zucchini grated
  • 4 tbsp spring onions (including white parts), finely chopped

  2. squeeze the zucchini with your hands to remove the excess of liquid
  3. add chopped spring onions, dill, parsley, mint, crumbled feta cheese, yogurt, egg, ground black pepper and mix well

  5. fry the fritters: preheat a cast iron pan / non-stick pan and oil it.
  6. make sure the oil does not burn or so would your fritters
  7. when a drop of water jumps and sizzles in the pan, you are ready

  9. repeat to fit in as many fritters as the pan allows
  10. fry until golden brown on both sides shaking the pan now and then
