For two people.
For the fritters/pancakes
- four small-medium zucchinis, topped, tailed and grated
- an egg, beaten
- garam masala
- plain flour with a little baking powder added
- salt and pepper
Mix the grated zucchini with a little salt, leave for 5-10 minutes and squeeze to remove some moisture, which I added to a soup I happened to be making.
Mix in other ingredients, quantities being rather a matter of opinion how you want these to turn out. I went more for pancake than fritter, ie a bit sloppy. Remember that you have already added some salt when you are seasoning.
I shallow fry with as little oil as possible in a non-stick pan. It should make about 7 small pieces, each one is maybe two dessert spoons full.
For the raita: I mixed a large grated carrot with about a cup of natural yoghurt and added a little salt and pepper. Mix. Just before serving heat a little oil in a small non-stick pan, when hot add a teaspoon (or more) of cumin seeds and chilli powder to taste, swirl once or twice, don’t burn!! Tip over the yoghurt/carrot, mix in.
