Fritters have never tasted this good!

Fritters must be the easiest snack in the world to make. Seriously, if you can grate something( and we all can do that), then you can make fritters. When I searched for the definition of “fritters”,  ended up on Wikipedia and according to them, fritters are “any kind of food coated with a batter and deep-fried.
They say that “Fritters are exclusively dough- or batter-based foodstuffs”. Big oops, that means that the recipe I am about to show you, is incorrect……so back to the research then!

Could they be “latkes” then? No, because from what I can understand, Latkes are potato based pancakes, so these babies are definitely not Latkes. I then searched for a zucchini fritter recipe and found that most people refer to these snacks as fritters, so right or wrong, here is my version of Zucchini and Potato Fritters.
I have made Zucchini and Corn Fritters before, but this time round I wanted to add some Greek Flavors to my Zucchini fritters and that meant adding lots of fresh herbs such as mint, dill and parsley and never forget the feta! So here then is version of ….

Fritters with a Greek Twist – Kolokithakia Tiganita

Ingredients

500gr zucchini – grated
200gr potato – grated
an open handful of fresh herbs such as mint, dill and parsley – chopped
salt/pepper
2 large eggs
1 onion grated
125ml flour
100 feta – crumbled
vegetable oil for frying

Place the grated zucchini and potato in a clean cloth and squeeze out all the excess  liquid. When most of the liquid is out, transfer the veggies to a bowl and mix with all the other ingredients except the oil. Heat the oil in a skillet and shallow fry until cooked through and golden brown.
Serve with tzatziki, crushed olives and more feta if needed. While we are on the subject of tzatziki, there is in my opinion NO BETTER recipe than this one……You wanna know how to make a proper tzatziki, you ask a proper Greek, right?
