MAKING THE BATTER: These little zucchini balls are so easy to whip up. Simply grate zucchini, sprinkle them with salt and drain completely with your hands or using a clean cloth.
Whisk eggs, Greek yogurt then add some salt and pepper. Fold flours plus baking powder then add prepared zucchini. The batter is ready for frying.
FRYING THE ZUCCHINI BALLS: These zucchini balls are the best fried in small skillet. Heat the oil over a medium-high heat (the oil should be around 1.5cm deep).
When the bubbles begin to rise from the bottom of the skillet, drop 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture into the oil. Fry for a few minutes on each side then transfer to a plate with kitchen paper to drain.
