These quantities will make about 12-16 fritters, depending on how generous you are with your spoonfuls of batter; plenty for 4 people.
1 large Onion
1 large Clove of garlic
3 large Eggs
3 tablespoons Plain flour
4 tablespoons Oil – sunflower
To taste Salt and pepper
1. Finely chop the onion and garlic and fry until it softens.
2. Meanwhile dice the courgette and add to the onion, frying it until it begins to brown. That caramelisation adds a subtle sweetness to the fritters.
3. Make a batter by mixing the flour into the beaten eggs, then adding the ricotta. Then add the vegetables, the basic and salt and pepper to taste.
4. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and begin to add tablespoons of the mixture, flattening them slightly as you do so. Fry for three or four minutes on each side, until the fritters begin to brown
