1 medium zucchini (approx weight 320 g)

2 medium carrots (approx weight 195 g)

1 medium onion (approx weight 125 g)

2 cloves garlic

1/2 cup all purpose flour

2 Tbs cornstarch

1 tsp paprika

1 Tbs thyme

1/2 tsp salt

black pepper

olive oil for pan frying


  1. Grate the zucchini, sprinkle the salt over it and mix. Transfer to a strainer set on top of a bowl and let it sit for about 10 minutes. In the meantime, grate the carrot, onion and garlic.

  2. Squeeze the zucchini with your hands or a cheese cloth to remove the excess liquid. Add to a bowl with the other grated vegetables, all the dry ingredients and a small pinch of salt. Mix to combine.

  3. Form golf sized balls out of the mixture. Place a fritter ball on a piece of parchment paper, fold the parchment paper over the top, then using a plate (or any other flat object) flatten. (I find this method much easier and cleaner but you can also just use your hands to shape them)

  4. Heat some olive oil in a pan on medium high heat. Pan fry the fritters for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown, then flip and cook on the other side for about 2 more minutes.

  5. Serve hot and enjoy!
