For the Fritters:

  • 3 medium zucchini, grated
  • 1 cup of corn kernels (fresh, canned, or thawed if frozen)
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup flour (chickpea flour for a gluten-free option)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • A handful of chopped coriander (cilantro) or parsley
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil, for frying

For the Yogurt Herb Dip:

  • 5 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
  • A good pinch of dried dill
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the Zucchini: After grating the zucchini, place it in a colander with a pinch of salt. Let it sit for a few minutes to draw out moisture, then squeeze the excess water out.
  2. Mix the Fritter Batter: In a large bowl, combine the drained zucchini, corn kernels, diced red onion, eggs, chickpea flour, baking powder, parmesan cheese, and your choice of herbs (coriander or parsley). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir until well mixed.
  3. Cook the Fritters: Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Spoon the batter into the pan, forming small fritters. Flatten them slightly with the back of the spoon. Fry until golden and crispy on both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  4. Prepare the Yogurt Herb Dip: While the fritters are cooking, prepare the dip. In a small bowl, mix the Greek yogurt with dried dill, salt, and pepper until well combined. Adjust the seasoning to your taste.
  5. Serve: Serve the warm fritters with the yogurt herb dip on the side. Enjoy as a nutritious start to your day or as a light and satisfying brunch option.
