Koloki…what? Although the pronunciation of the name suggests otherwise, this Greek recipe is easy to make. Only with a few ingredients you can make delicious zucchini fritters. But where does that name come from? "Kolokithia" is Greek for zucchini and "keftedes" means meatballs. The Kolokithokeftedes are very tasty with tzatziki and you can eat them as a starter or snack. Not to be missed on a serving board with various Greek mezedakia, such as dips with pita bread.

Step 1: make the zucchini mixture
Grate the zucchini and wring out all the moisture in a tea towel.
Put the finely chopped onion in a pan with olive oil and caramelize
Mix the zucchini grater, onion, spring onion, feta, egg and dill in a bowl. Be careful with the salt, as the feta is already salty on its own.
Add flour until the mixture sticks together so that you can roll it into balls.
Step 2: bake the zucchini fritters
Pour a good splash of sunflower oil and some olive oil into a frying pan. Don't be too frugal!
Take some of the zucchini mixture with a tablespoon and make an oval burger of about 3 cm thick.
