Ingredients

  • 250g Ricotta cheese
  • 250g Courgettes
  • 1 Egg
  • Salt
  • 50g Bread Crumbs (plus extra for the coating)
  • Vegetable oil, to fry

Method

  1. Grate the courgettes and squeeze out any excess water. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl mix well the ricotta cheese and 1 egg. Add grated courgettes, salt and bread crumbs.
  3. In a large pan, over medium heat, add the oil to fry the fritters.
  4. Meanwhile roll the ricotta and courgette mix into balls and coat them with bread crumbs.
  5. When the oil is ready, fry the courgette and ricotta fritters, flipping them over once, until they are golden brown.
  6. When ready, move them on a plate lined with kitchen paper.
  7. Serve them with mayo or ketchup.

Not a fan of fried food? You can cook the fritters in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius until golden brown.
For a nice twist, once cooked, put them in a pan with tomato sauce, for 20 minutes (over low heat) and enjoy with a crusty baguette to dip into the sauce!
