Greek-style zucchini fritters (or meatballs): to order them in Greece just say Kolokythokeftédes, Κολοκυθοκεφτέδες …or "zucchini balls " and we do first.
They are zucchini and feta meatballs (or pancakes depending on the shape, I prefer the flattened shape for more uniform cooking). Feta cheese (inevitable in Greek dishes a bit like mozzarella in Campania!) Is very tasty, crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside! Originally from Crete, these meatballs are always found in the menus of restaurants and taverns !! Thanks to the mint and lemon zest they have a very fresh taste, one really leads to another, little oil is used and they are also suitable for vegetarians. Amazing! Here are some tricks to make them come perfect. In the next few days I will post other Greek recipes, I hope you like them !!
