Courgette fritters

Our courgette plant is on a roll and has been giving courgettes pretty much every week. So we're now definitely managing to incorporate some veg in our meals :). Today, instead of making the usual salad we decided to make some bhajis (fritters), like onion bhajis (yum!!). Instead of deep frying the bhajis, we shallow fried them in some coconut oil, which added to the taste and was a healthy option too. This was perfect to have with our evening cuppa while lounging in front of the TV (the little one played on her rocker). This is the life! :D

Ingredients

2 courgettes
1/2 tsp of chilli powder
Salt and pepper to season
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup chickpea flour (or as required)

Method

Peel the courgettes and grate them into a bowl. Add salt and squeeze with your hands and let the water out from the courgettes. Do not drain the water.

Add the chilli powder and pepper and mix well. Slowly add in the chickpea flour to the courgettes and mix till you form a batter which is not runny but easy to stir and spoon.

Heat the coconut oil on a non stick skillet or griddle. Spoon a tablespoon of the mixture onto the skillet and flatten slightly. Cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side until they are golden brown.

We had them just as they are but you could serve them with some mint chutney or ketchup :)
