How to make Courgette fritters?

  • Sift the flour into a large bowl, and make a well in the centre. Add the eggs to the well, and gradually draw in the flour from the sides using a wooden spoon.
  • Slowly add the milk to the mixture, stirring constantly to form a thick batter. Add the courgettes and thyme, season with salt and pepper, and mix thoroughly.
  • Heat the oil in a large heavy frying pan until hot. Cooking in batches, carefully drop in tablespoons of the batter to make the fritters. Shallowfry for 3 minutes on each side.
  • Remove the fritters with a slotted spoon, and drain on kitchen paper. Serve hot.

Precautionary Measures:

When preparing Courgette Fritters, consider these precautions for a safe and enjoyable cooking experience:
  • Exercise caution when using a knife to chop or grate courgettes. Use a stable cutting surface and keep fingers away from the blade.
  • Be cautious of hot oil when frying the fritters. Use a splatter guard or lid to minimize the risk of burns.
  • Use oven mitts or potholders when handling hot pans or trays. Be mindful of hot surfaces on the stovetop and in the oven.
  • Fritters are best enjoyed fresh. Serve promptly to retain their crispy texture and delicious flavor.
  • If making ahead, store fritters in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat thoroughly before serving.
