Quick and easy recipe from a Serbo-Croatian friend, Gordana. She likes them for breakfast. I do too - I've added the Indian style variation

Ingredients Nutrition

  • For one person

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 small courgette, grated
  • 1 12 tablespoons flour
  • salt and pepper
  • oregano (or teaspoon ground cumin + coriander)
  • olive oil or sunflower oil, for shallow frying


  1. Add the egg to the grated courgette and mix.
  2. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix.
  3. There are two versions here, one a European one with added herbs: fresh Oregano, and one an Indian one with added spices: ground cumin and coriander.
  4. The resultant mixture is then spooned into a frying pan with hot oil, flattened out into 3 or four small fritters and gently fried on both sides.

Thank you! Picked courgettes & oregano from the garden & made these for lunch! Used some gram flour as well as the usual which added to the flavour. Fantastic recipe!

Yum. We are trying out a low carb diet and were looking for something to replace the sauce absorbing quality of mashed potato. These worked very well and are also very nice in thier own right.
