  • 2 medium courgettes (grated)
  • 1 small can of sweetcorn (198g)
  • 1 small onion (grated)
  • 2/3 cup all- purpose flour
  • 1 small egg (optional)
  • 1/3 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetarian Parmesan (optional)
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil (for frying)

Spicy Sriracha Dip:

  • 1 cup soya yogurt (or any other yogurt)

  1. Using a clean tea towel, squeeze as much liquid from grated courgettes and onion as possible. Transfer courgettes and onion into a large bowl.

  3. Heat small amount of vegetable oil in a large frying pan. Using 1/4 cup mixture per fritter, spoon out the mixture and fry each fritter for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
