Zucchini Fritters (Kabak Mucveri)

1 lb zucchini, peeled and shredded
4-5 green onions/ 1 big onion, chopped
½ bunch parsley/dill, finely chopped
1-2 eggs, beaten
½ cup crumbled feta cheese (optional)
4-5 tbsp flour, heaping
¼ tsp baking powder
½ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp paprika (optional)
1 tsp salt to taste
1 cup olive/canola oil for frying

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, but eggs and oil. Then stir in beaten eggs and get ready for frying (eggs make the mixture juicy). If your mixture gets juicy, drain the excess water.
In a wide skillet, sizzle oil and drop 1 table spoon of mixture into it. Then press gently to flatten and give a pate shape. Fry both sides till they get golden brown over high medium heat. Place fried Zucchini Fritters over a paper towel to get rid of the excess oil.
Serve Zucchini Fritters cold or warm with garlic yogurt sauce or yogurt.
ENJOY
