For the fritters:
2 spring onions
1 small garlic clove
10 g chives or other herbs*
120 g flour
1 tsp salt
1 pinch of pepper
Grate the courgette, put in a sieve and sprinkle with a good pinch of salt. Massage the salt into the courgette and set aside for 20 minutes to release some liquid. Meanwhile, slice the spring onions, peel and crush the garlic and chop the chives.
After 20 minutes, squeeze out the liquid from the courgettes and discard. Put the courgettes in a bowl, add the sliced spring onions, garlic, chives, cottage cheese, flour, egg and salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.
Cover the bottom of a frying pan with olive oil and put over a medium heat. Put 4 heaped tablespoons of the batter into the frying pan to shape 4 patties. Fry for 3 minutes on each side until browned, drain on kitchen paper. Repeat with the remaining batter.
For the dip:
1 pinch of salt & pepper
While the fritters are frying, make the dip. Put the cottage cheese in a bowl, add the chopped chives and season with salt and pepper.
Serve the fritters with the dip.
*You can use chopped basil, dill or mint instead.
