Courgette Potato Fritters

Todays veg of the day at Aldi was courgette. I´ve got two of them and prepared one when I came home. Fritters need some base, that are my potatoes. Just 4 medium ones to one 25 cm courgette.

I served them with poached eggs.

1 courgette
4 potatoes
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp potato starch
1 tbsp panko breadcrumbs
1 egg
salt, pepper
nutmeg and dried herbs
5 tbsp rapeseed oil

eggs for poaching

Use a kitchen machine or a block grater and make a coarse mass out of potatoes and courgette. I grated the potato together with the onion and the courgette together with the garlic in the machine.
Both need to be squeezed out, there is so much liquid in the courgette and in the potatoes.
Mix it in a bowl with the other ingredients and heat the oil in a wide frying pan.

Make pancakes and wait until you see a brown coming around the edges of the pancakes, then flip them over and bake until the other side is done. Drain them on kitchen paper.

Do not overload the pan, the pancakes need some room in the pan.
While baking them you can put a pot of water on the hob with a bit of vinegar and bring it to a boil, reduce the heat to simmer and drop the eggs in to poach for 3 minutes.
