Products used:

Fior Di Vita Greek Manouri

For the Sauce:
– Mix together sour cream, coriander, ground cardamom, zest and juice of lime, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a grind of pepper. Set aside in the fridge until ready to serve.
For the Fritters:
  1. Place the grated zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt. Set aside for 10 minutes, then squeeze them to remove most of the liquid (don’t squeeze them completely dry).
  2. Transfer to a large bowl and add the shallots, garlic, lime zest, flour, eggs, ground coriander, cardamom and a grind of black pepper. Mix well to form a uniform batter, then gently fold in roughly chopped Fior Di Vita Greek Manouri Cheese (1-2cm chunks).
  3. Pour enough oil into a large frying pan so it rises 2–3mm up the sides and place on a medium heat. Once hot, add 4 separate heaped tablespoons of mixture to the pan, spacing them well apart and flattening each fritter slightly as they cook.
  4. Cook for 6 minutes, turning once halfway through, until golden and crisp on both sides. Transfer to a kitchen paper-lined plate and keep somewhere warm while you continue with the remaining two batches.
  5. Serve with a bowl of the sauce on the side.
