METHOD.

 

For the sweet corn salsa mix all ingredients together. Refrigerate until required.

 

To make the yoghurt dressing, place all ingredients (except yoghurt) into a Mortar and pestle or food processor and blend until combined. Mix this paste into yoghurt well, and refrigerate.

 

In a mixing bowl add the zucchinis to the egg/flour mixture and incorporate well. Then mix in all other ingredients. Heat olive oil to a medium temperature in a heat based pan and add 1/4 cup of batter mixture for each fritter. Once golden and bubbles appear on top flip over and allow to cook for approximately 5 minutes. To keep fritters warm, place on a baking tray in oven at 100 degrees covered with foil until required.

 

To assemble layer yoghurt dressing on a zucchini fritter and top with 1 heaped tablespoon of salsa. Repeat this process so that each serve incorporates 2 fritters. Garnish with a sprig of mint and serve immediately.
