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.

Preparation
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.
