Courgette and Feta Fritters
Serves 4 (As a starter)
For the Dip: 150ml Soured Cream, 5 Cardamom Pods (Ground), Zest and Juice 1 Lime, Large Handful Chopped Coriander, Sea Salt, Cracked Black Pepper
For the Fritters: 2 Large Courgettes (Grated), 1/2 Small Onion (Finely Sliced), 2 Garlic Cloves (Crushed), 70g Self Raising Flour, 2 Large Eggs (Whisked), 1tsp Ground Coriander, 1/2tsp Ground Clove, 150g Feta Cheese (Diced), 4tbsp Vegetable Oil
1) Make the dip by mixing together all of the ingredients (seasoning with salt and pepper to taste) in a small bowl. Cover and set aside until ready to serve.
2) Place the courgette in a bowl and sprinkle with a little salt. Leave for 10 minutes then squeeze out the majority of the water and transfer to a clean bowl. Add all of the other ingredients to the bowl (except the feta and vegetable oil) and mix well to combine. Add the feta and fold to combine.
3) Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the vegetable oil and shallow fry tablespoonfuls of the mixture for 3 minutes each side – pat the spoonfuls down slightly when they are in the pan. Once cooked, drain and keep warm. Continue to fry in batches until the mixture is exhausted.
4) Serve the fritters with the soured cream dip and lime wedges.
