Courgette Fritters

An easy and tasty snack or starter.  We cooked these in our pizza oven on a griddle pan but of course they could be cooked on the hob too.   We added a whole chili for a medium heat but leave this out if you prefer!

Makes: 6 fritters
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Method: Pizza Oven or Hob
Heat scale: 🌶️🌶️

1 medium courgette, grated
1 small onion, grated
1 chili, chopped
1 tsp Tandoori Masala Spice Blend
60g mozzarella cheese
60g plain flour
1 egg, beaten
Salt and pepper
Fresh coriander, chopped
Oil, for the pan



  1. Grate the courgette and onion and squeeze out any excess moisture
  2. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and combine well
  3. Oil the griddle pan and pre-heat in the pizza oven or on the hob.  (We aimed for 500° in the pizza oven but we were well short of that).
  4. Spoon around 1 tbsp of the mixture per fritter onto the pan and flatten
  5. If your pizza oven is very hot, cook for around 2 minutes each side.  Ours took much longer!

Serve with tzatziki for a delicious snack or starter

Recipe notes:
Don't try and turn the fritters until too soon otherwise they will fall apart!
