ingredients for the fritters in a bowl

fritters dough

Heat some olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Using a measuring cup or a large tablespoon spoon the mixture into the frying pan and flatten the dough with a spatula.

Fry the fritters for approximately 4 minutes on each side until they are nice and golden.

Take the fritters out of the frying pan and put them on the plate with the kitchen paper towel to remove excess oil. Keep warm.

Repeat with the remaining batter.

For tzatziki:

Grate the cucumber and using your hand or a clean muslin squeeze all the liquid out of it.

Put a cup of yoghurt into a bowl and add grated cucumber and pressed garlic.

Season with salt, pepper, and dried mint, mix, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Tzatziki will stay fresh in the fridge if stored in an air-tight container or Masson jar for up to 2 days.


Serve with baby spinach and tzatziki sauce and enjoy!



I recomend to use the dough straight away. If you had to leave it for a while you might find it became watery. If this has happened to you, simply add another tablespoon of flour.
