Tonight was one of those evening when something really easy was needed for dinner. Sometimes I love to take the whole day to prepare a meal, doing bit by bit, tweaking it here and there: today was not one of those days.
Fritters is always something I remember from my own childhood as a great summer meal, served with a lovely salad. These were the type of dinner that seemed to magically appear from nowhere.
There are so many flavour combinations for fritters. Two of my seasonal favourite vegetables at the moment are zucchini and corn which are ideal ingredients for these.
It always amazes me how much can be squeezed from grated zucchini.
With the help of some flour, egg, milk and seasoning, an easy (and fairly frugal) dinner was on the table. Served with some homemade yoghurt and mint dressing, I was pretty happy with the result.
Now if only the other, smaller members of the household didn't think I was trying to poison them. Perhaps next time I'll add some grated potato and pass these off as giant chips.
What are your favourite fritter flavours?
