Greek Style Zucchini Fritters with a Mint dip

I have been a fan of Kevin's blog for a long time. While I am a long way from the Bahn mi burger or the Okonomiyaki, these fritters were right up my alley. I had some fresh zucchini (for which I paid a bomb here in Nagpur) and feta in the fridge and the resultant combo was yum. I added a green chili for some additional spice to the recipe.



1 1/2 cups freshly grated zucchini
1/3 cup chopped coriander
4-5 leaves mint chopped fine
1 1/2 tablespoons crumbled feta
1 small onion (or spring onion), finely diced
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 green chili, finely diced
Oil as needed 
Black Pepper

Mix all the ingredients except the oil. The moisture from the zucchini will provide binding, if not add a little additional water to form the batter. Heat a non-stick pan and add a teaspoon of oil to it. Form small patties and fry till golden brown. Flip and cook the other side. It should take about 5- 6 minutes per fritter. 
Serve hot with the mint dip. 

Mint dip:


1/2 cup greek yogurt (or regular yogurt strained to remove some of the water)
3-4 mint leaves, finely chopped
Black pepper

Mix all the ingredients together and serve immediately.
