Zucchini and dill fritters with whipped feta


Serve these tasty, crunchy little bundles with a refreshing beer.

You'll need

For deep-frying: vegetable oil 60 ml (¼ cup) buttermilk 2 eggs 80 gm plain flour 3 zucchini, coarsely grated 2 spring onions, thinly sliced ½ cup each coarsely chopped dill and mint Finely grated rind of 2 lemons, plus lemon wedges to serve   Whipped feta 200 gm Greek feta 30 ml lemon juice 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil
