These are addictive. They can be an appetizer, a side dish or the main meal itself (accompanied by a salad)
- Lightly salt the grated pumpkin and put in a colander to drain for 1/2 an hour.
- Get out as much water as you can by squeezing the pumpkin between your hands, before proceeding with recipe.
- Lightly saute the onion and green onion in 1 tblsp olive oil in a non-stick skillet.
- In a bowl, combine the pumpkin with the onion and add the feta, egg and dill.
- When this is combined well, add the flour, a little at a time, until you have a very soft dough.
- Take a tablespoonful of the pumpkin dough and drop into a the flour you've put aside for dredging.
- Gently press down on the dough to give it a pillowey-disk shape.
- Turn over and dredge other side.
- Do this to a number of fritters (as many as you think will fit into your frying pan at one go without over-crowding).
- Heat oil (we use olive oil here in Greece, but a vegetable oil could be used instead) over medium heat and, when hot, add fritters.
- Fry until deep golden-brown on both sides.
- Remove to paper towels to drain.
- Repeat, using up remaining fritter dough.
