Courgette Glut?

If, like us, you have courgettes piling up against the front door, try this recipe. It's really easy, and very tasty.  I actually got it from  As usual (for me), I "doctored" it a bit, and it was very tasty.  The amounts here will serve 4 people.

Courgette Fritters with Tomato and Feta Salsa

1 red chilli, finely chopped
125g self-raising flour
Half a red onion
2 large eggs
3 medium courgettes, grated
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin seeds (didn't have any, so used fenugreek seeds)
Salsa ingredients :-
125g cherry tomatoes, quartered and mixed with
100g crumbled Feta and a
Handful of mint leaves, chopped and
Juice of half a lemon

Mix chilli, courgette, onion, cumin seeds, flour and eggs together (I also added some green coriander seeds for a bit of "zing") and season with salt and black pepper.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non-stick frying pan, drop in heaped tablespoons of batter.  Cook, in batches, for 2-3 minutes each side, or until golden.
Meanwhile, mix all the salsa ingredients and serve with the fritters.

We had it with garlic mashed potato and a nice, cold glass of white wine.  I'll definitely be making it again.
