Courgette fritters / Mucver

Weather has been exceptionally good this summer which means I get to have picnic lunches at work. This was my picnic lunch today.

Courgette fritters leftover from last night
Yogurt to dip the fritters
Cherry tomatoes 

Here is the recipe for the Courgette fritters which is called Mucver in Turkish.

5 medium size courgettes, top and tailed and grated (in food processor) 
1 medium onion diced
1 big bunch of dill chopped
3 medium eggs
3 heaped table spoons plain floor
50 gr (1/4 pack) feta cheese grated
salt and black pepper to season
Olive oil

Put the grated courgettes in a colander and leave for 15 minutes for the juices to drain. You can help it by squeezing the juices out.

Put everything except the oil in a bowl an mix well with a spoon.

Heat the oil in a frying pan, put enough oil to have 1/2 cm deep oil at the bottom of the pan.

Once the oil is hot take a table spoon full of the mixture and put in the oil and flatted in by tapping with the spoon. fry each side until golden brown on medium heat, takes about 2 minutes each side.

Take the fritters off the pan and put them on kitchen paper to drain. You can eat like this or if you prefer a bit well done you can pop them on a baking dish and bake in oven 200 C / fan 180 C/ gas mark 6 for 8-10 minutes more.

Serve them with tomato salad and yogurt to dip.
