I'll tell you what you can do :

This recipe is very easy to make, and sooo delicious! First shred or dice the zucchini and sprinkle some salt. Allow it to strain in a colander over paper towels for about 20 minutes. Pat dry again to make sure as much moisture as possible is removed.

Now in a large mixing bowl combine the zucchini with all the other chopped ingredients as well as the spices. Mix well.

Now add enough flour to make the mixture into more of a paste, approximately one cup. At this point you can store the mixture in the refrigerator until you are ready to fry.

Spoon out a heaping tablespoon or two of the mixture and place in a shallow frying pan with enough hot oil to fry. You can pat the spoonful down into a nice-sized patty. Then, sauté on medium heat until golden brown, flipping once to cook both sides.

Serve as a side dish or main course with Iraqi cinnamon rice. It's sooo good!


Although zucchini is a common ingredient for vegetable kefta, you can experiment with any combination of vegetables to make your own dish that is sooo good!

This recipe is a vegan recipe, but you could also add cheese or egg to the mixture to help hold the fritters together. In that case, you'll need much less flour.

Your favorite filling = sooo good!

Best of luck,
