I thought this was pretty tasty. I agree that it could've done with a little less feta, however.
It was nice, however not breathtaking. Due to the amount of feta and herbs the courgette taste was barely noticable. Better take at least 900 g and drain it very well. Also it is handy to use an ice-scoop before making paddies and roll them thru Panka. Frying in sesameoil should add to the nutty flavour...
These were ok. I played around with the spices and tried one batch with garlic and also added some salt. But at the end of the day was nothing really impressive.
