Ideal, perfect, wonderful! I have been planning to try these fritters at home for a long time after I first tried them in a restaurant in Bitola. Normally, they wouldn't share the recipe, I understand that.  So since I do have experience with zucchini burgers, it wasn't hard for me to find out a way to prepare fritters too. I always give advantage to baked food, but once in a while I allow fried food in my home, and these fritters are really worth it. And I really think the taste is almost the same as in that restaurant. Well I could've give them a free ad if they gave me the recipe but now no, I won't tell the name of the restaurant :) So, you'll get around 25-30 fritters from this dose.


  • 400 g (14 oz) grated drained zucchini
  • 260 g (9 oz) of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 150 ml (2/3 cup) plain yogurt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • half a teaspoon of salt
  • half a teaspoon garlic powder
  • oil for frying
  • about 70 ml from the zucchini water


  1. Grate the zucchini first and put them in a kitchen cloth. Squeeze them occasionally, and save some of the water from the squeezing, you will need it later. 

  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, egg and yogurt well and add about 50 ml (about 3.5 tbs) of zucchini water. Add the grated zucchini and mix well. Add a little more water if the mixture is too thick, but keep in mind that it will dilute a little more after a while because zucchini tends to release water all the time.

  3. Then heat a larger amount of oil or even better, use a fryer if you have. 
  4. Using a spoon, take from the mixture and slowly put the contents into the heated oil. 
  5. Fry at a moderate temperature until nicely browned on both sides. 
  6. Take out the finished fritters on a kitchen paper. Combine with garlic spread. 
  7. Cheers
