Encore Fritters

I have made these delightful fritters before with an different flavour and they were very morish. They are very good the next day straight out the fridge and especially nice when you standing with the fridge door open deciding what to make for supper!

There are no fixed rules on what to add, just so long as you don't over power the courgettes.

Chilli and Chinese Five Spice Courgette Fritters.

2 Cups Grated Courgettes
± ¾ Cup Self Raising Flour
¾ teaspoon Baking Power
1 Teaspoon Dried chilli (I used the smoked chilli which was really good)
¼ Teaspoon Chinese Five Spice
¼ Teaspoon Jenny Morris Lemon Pepper
¼ Teaspoon Garlic Powder
Grated Zest of a Lemon
± ½ cup Milk

Grate the courgettes and then place them in a kitchen towel and squeeze out as much liquid as you can.
Add all the ingredients, except the milk.
Slowly mix in the milk until you have a medium batter (I hope the picture below shows the consistency).

Heat a non-stick pan sprayed with a little non stick spray, (no need for extra oil)
Drop spoonfuls of the batter in the hot pan.
When you see bubbles on the top, flip over and cook until golden brown and cooked through.
Serve hot or cold, also great with sweet chilli dipping sauce.

This looks as good as the first time...even better, I think!

MMmmm - did you do those in a non-stick pan, though?

Nina - It is better than the first time.

Jacoba - I did, there was no added oil .

I've had a craving for fritters reently - probably since your previous fritters! Really have to make a plan to make me some...

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
