ZUCCHINI AND PANIR FRITTERS

Perfect finger food!

Method

4 cups of grated zucchini - place in a colander sprinkle with salt and let drain for 15 minutes.
Squeeze out excess moisture and place in a large bowl

Into the zucchini bowl add...

1/2 cup of chopped spring onions (white part)
2 tablespoons of fresh dill (chopped)
2 tablespoons of fresh parsley(chopped)
3 beaten eggs
1 tablespoon of paprika
good grind of Black Pepper

Stir the contents well with a wooden spoon and then slowly add
250gms of crumbled Panir Cheese (or Feta can be substituted)
and 1 cup of Plain flour incorporating all together well.

Using a large frying pan or skillet generously cover with olive oil, heat the oil and when ready adjust heat to medium and gently drop dollops about the size of heaped tablespoons of the zucchini mixture into pan. Cook a few at a time so as not to overcrowd the pan
Fry them on both sides until golden brown. Remove and drain on crumpled kitchen paper.

Ideal to be eaten on their own as a light dish or as a vegetable accompaniment to meat and poultry dishes - even make small ones as finger food!

They go well with any yoghurt style sauce - garlic is especially good!
