Maybe you do not like zucchini (courgette) taste, but you can make it tasty and enjoy it now and again.
Zucchini is very watery and best way or let’s say ways to remove excess water is to salt the zucchini and then squeeze it.
Today I have my zucchini cakes with orange-yogurt sauce. Just give a try and find out how much they are tasty, delicate and light.
1 large zucchini, coarsely grated
3 baby carrots, grated
2 spring onions, chopped
1 small bunch fresh dill leaves, chopped
3 large eggs
150 g haloumi cheese, grated
1 clove garlic
1tsp baking soda
2tbsp bread crumbs
Salt and chili flakes to taste
Ingredients for orange-yogurt sauce
1 orange zest
1 small clove garlic
3tbsp plain yogurt
Grate the zucchini. Because zucchini is really watery I have used two methods to remove the water. First of all, toss with salt to draw out the liquid ( 15 minutes). Then place it in a kitchen towel, bring corners of towel together and squeeze out the liquid as possible.
Place grated zucchini in a bowl, add grated haloumi cheese, garlic, carrots, chopped spring onions and dill, baking soda, bread crumbs, eggs, and season with salt and chili flakes.
Stir to combine well.
Heat the oil in a pan. Drop 1 tbsp of mixture into the pan and cook 5 minutes each side.
Mix orange zest and grated garlic with yogurt.
Serve the zucchini fritters with orange yogurt sauce. Serve the zucchini fritters with orange yogurt sauce.
