An idea for a snack or a meal. These fritters are a good way to have children eat more vegetables.
1 egg whisked lightly
1 cup of self raising flour
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup of oil
Optional 1/2 cup of grated cheese
1 cup of Zucchini grated. I use my Kenwood food processor that grates in seconds. You can also use grated carrots for this recipe.
1 tsp of garlic
1 tbs of Italian mixed herbs or any herbs you fancy.
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix the wet ingredients together in a large bowl.
Add the grated Zucchini and mix well.
Finally add the self raising flour and make sure it is mixed well with the wet ingredients to form a thick batter. if your batter is too thick use a little more milk.
Heat a frying pan with a little oil. A trick I use is to fill a small bowl with some oil and use a paper towel to dip it in the oil and wipe the frying pan. This means I don't use an excessive amount of oil and the fritters don't stick to the pan.
When the pan is hot, pour a 1/4 cup of the (I use a measuring cup as a scoop) on the pan. When you see bubbles on the top, flip the fritter over to cook on the other side.
If you have a big enough pan you can make a few fritters at a time.
Once, cooled, place the fitters in your Tucker tin. Add a salad or some cut vegetables like carrot sticks or cherry tomatoes.
