Cooking Instructions

  • Whisk the eggs and milk together in a separate bowl.
  • Gradually add the egg and milk mixture to the dry ingredients, whisking constantly, to form a smooth batter.
  • Place the courgettes and onions into a bowl and mix well.
  • Add some of the batter to the vegetable mixture, enough to bind it together.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Place a spoonful of the mixture into the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden-brown all over. Remove and drain on kitchen paper. Set aside in a warm place and repeat the process until all the fritter mixture is used up
