Courgette and Halloumi Cheese Fritters

This will make about eight rissoles – enough for four people


3-4 medium courgettes

1 onion

1 pack halloumi cheese

3 tablespoons plain flour

1 egg yolk

1 tablespoon chopped dill (optional)

Olive oil for frying

Grate the courgettes, place in a clean tea towel or muslin and squeeze as much liquid out as possible. Transfer to a large bowl. Grate the onion and cheese and add these to the courgettes. Add all the other ingredients except the oil. Mix well adding more flour if the mixture is a little on the wet side

Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Grab a golf ball sized blob of the mixture and flatten it in your hands. Fry in the hot oil until brown on each side – about 5 minutes per side

Serve with new potatoes, a watercress salad and a generous helping of natural yogurt with chives
