Turkish Zucchini Fritters (Mücver)
These fritters are amazing with Greek yogurt mixed with lemon juice drizzled on top of them.
2 zucchini (about 1 pound), finely chopped
1 onion, coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup chopped scallions
1/4 cup minced parsley
1/4 cup minced dill
1/2 cup (6-8 ounces) feta, crumbled
Fry onion in 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat until soft and translucent. Add the zucchini and saute, stirring until soft (about 3 minutes). Let cool.
In bowl, beat eggs with flour. Add feta cheese, pepper, herbs and mix well. Add the onion and zucchini and mix everything together.
Heat clean saute pan with remaining oil to medium-medium high. Drop scoops of mixture into pan (you can make several at the same time). Turn heat down to medium. Turn each fritter over once, until both sides have turned golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
