Corn and Zucchini Fritters

Ingredients

1 small or ½ large zucchini, grated
1 corn cob, kernels sliced off
½ red onion, finely chopped
1 can (400g) of chickpeas, drained and mashed
100g Paneer cheese*, grated
1-2 eggs for binding
1/3 cup plain flour
¼ cup parsley, finely chopped or 1tablespoon coriander leaves, finely chopped
Season if desired
Sunflower oil for a shallow fry

Tips

To add some spice, serve with sweet chilli sauce, or plain yoghurt mixed with finely chopped cucumber and coriander leaves.

Top the fritter with a slice of smoked salmon and a dollop of the yoghurt mix.

Cut up the fritter into strips and serve as finger food to your toddler.

*Paneer Cheese

Paneer cheese is often used in Indian and Asian dishes. It is made with whey only, unlike other cheeses which use rennet. This makes it suitable for vegetarians. It is low in sodium (salt) and a good source of protein.

As the cheese doesn’t melt during cooking, it is best to grate if you want a smooth texture.

Paneer cheese is available in most supermarkets.
