Easy Courgette Fritters

Easy Courgette Fritters

Courgette fritters are a delicious and easy-to-make dish. They are very versatile as they can be served as a main meal or as a snack.


  • 3 large courgettes, finely grated
  • 1 large red onion, finely chopped
  • 2.5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Finely grate the courgettes using a food processor. Place the grated courgettes in a sieve, sprinkle with 1 tbsp of salt and let sit for 15 minutes. Squeeze handfuls of the grated courgette tightly to remove excess water and return to the food processor.
  2. Add the chopped red onion, flour, baking soda, eggs, salt, and pepper to the food processor. Mix the ingredients together with a wooden spoon until combined.
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add about 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Once the oil is hot, add one heaping tablespoon of the zucchini mixture at a time, flattening out the tops slightly to make the fritters even. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown. If the fritters brown too quickly, reduce the heat. Serve warm with a dollop of yogurt.

Helpful tips:

  • Add feta cheese to the mixture to make it extra delicious.
  • To reheat the fritters, microwave them for 2 minutes.
  • Use just enough oil to coat the pan. This is a shallow fry, not a deep fry.
  • Use a non-stick skillet to prevent sticking.
  • Cook the fritters in batches of 5-7 at a time to avoid overcrowding the pan. Add more oil if necessary.
  • If baking the fritters, use parchment paper to prevent sticking and spray with olive oil for a crispy texture.
