Ingredients

  • 2 small zucchini
  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour
  • 1/2 cup (75g) self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) milk
  • 2 Coles Australian Free Range Eggs, lightly whisked
  • 1 cup (160g) frozen corn kernels, thawed, drained
  • 125g haloumi, coarsely grated
  • 1/2 cup (60g) grated tasty cheddar
  • 2 tbs finely chopped chives
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) vegetable oil

Method

STEP 1 

Coarsely grate the zucchini. Place in a sieve over a bowl. Set aside for 5 mins to drain.

STEP 2 

Meanwhile, sift combined flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Whisk milk and eggs in a jug. Add egg mixture to flour. Whisk until smooth. Use your hands to squeeze excess moisture from zucchini. Discard liquid. Add zucchini, corn, haloumi, cheddar and chives to the bowl. Stir to combine.

STEP 3 

Heat 1 tbs of the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Pour four ¼-cup (60ml) portions of the zucchini mixture around the pan, allowing room for spreading. Cook for 3 mins each side or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat with the remaining oil and zucchini mixture. Serve warm or cold.

Store it: Keep fritters in a container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Wrap individually and place in lunch boxes with an ice brick.
