Ingredients
  • 6 small zucchini, grated
  • Salt
  • 1/2 pound white Turkish cheese or feta, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 green onions, finely chopped
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Oil for frying
  • Tomato relish (recipe follows)
  • TOMATO RELISH:
  • 4 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions

Place grated zucchini in a colander, sprinkle with salt and let stand at least 20 minutes, or until it loses its juice. Squeeze dry and place in a large bowl. Add the cheese, dill, parsley, onions, eggs, flour, and pepper and mix well. Adjust the seasonings. If batter is too runny, add a little more flour.

Heat oil in a heavy saucepan. Drop batter by tablespoons into oil and fry until golden brown on all sides but still moist inside, about 2 to 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve warm with Tomato Relish.

TOMATO RELISH:

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Taste for seasoning. Set aside at room temperature for a few hours, or cover and chill for several days.
