Perfect for a party platter.


Makes 20

2 courgettes, grated, drained
1 Tbsp finely chopped ginger
1 carrot, grated
½ cup flour
1½ Tbsp cornflour
1 egg, lightly beaten
pinch salt
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
canola oil spray for frying

Dill and coriander dipping sauce:
1 cup rice vinegar

Place courgettes in a large bowl, then add remaining ingredients, except oil. Mix gently until combined.
Heat a large heavy-based frying pan. Spray lightly with oil.
Drop heaped teaspoons of mixture into the pan and fry until bubbles form on the surface of the fritters, or about 2 minutes.
Turn over and cook other side until golden brown.

Place the vinegar and sugar in a small pan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add fish sauce, remove from heat and cool.
Add herbs and transfer to a serving bowl.
