Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place zucchini in a colander or strainer, add salt, and let sit to drain for 15-20 minutes. Before using, press to remove all excess moisture.

  3. In a frying pan, melt the margarine, add grated onion, and sauté until translucent.
  4. In a mixing bowl, add zucchini, grated carrot, drained onion, cheese, bread crumbs, mint, dill, eggs, and pepper. Mix well with hands until all ingredients are well blended and the mixture is firm.
  5. Add flour to bind if there's too much liquid.
  6. Shape into patties about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch high.
  7. Fry in hot oil until golden, about 2-3 minutes. Drain on absorbent paper towels and serve hot.
