Courgette Fritters

½ cup plain flour

½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp mixed herbs

½ cup milk

½ onion

1 cup grated courgette

¼ cup grated cheese

1 egg (beaten)

2 tbsp olive oil

Combine flour, baking powder and herbs into a bowl.  Slowly add milk, mixing to a batter like consistency.  Finely chop the onion, then add onion and courgette to the fritter mix.  Stir through.  Beat egg and mix into the fritter mixture.  Finally, add the cheese and stir lightly through.  Heat oil in a frying pan, up to a moderate heat.  Drop tablespoons of the fritter mixture into the pan.  Cook until golden on one side, then turn and cook the other side.  Serve hot. 

These are a great lunchbox filler with hummus, or a nice chutney, or add a side salad for a tasty meal.  You can replace the courgette with any other vegetables, or a combination for variety.
