  • This recipe has a great combination of ingredients thanks so mich sounds great


  • Oh wow, love the sound of this for MY lunch box. And it’s gluten free! yay for me. I’m pinning this recipe for later use


  • I love these fritters – served with chutney and sour cream. Yum.


  • Nice ingredients. Don’t think my kids would like it with dried mint, but that’s easy to omit


  • Sounds delicious especially the toppings!


  • This sounds lovely though I haven’t heard of besan flour before.

    • It’s the same as chickpea flour. Woolworths sells it (by all the flours) and so does Coles (Indian Isle), Indian shops and Harris Farm sell it too.


  • A new one to try and they do look so yummy to eat.


  • Yum these look delicious


  • I don’t usually put leek in my recipes and Im not sure what besa flour is but the main ingredients have me interested..


  • Nice recipe and thanks mum for sharing the recipe book as well.


  • I don’t have zucchini growing this year but I do have eggplant and that’s pretty much the same. Might have to give it a go we do love cooked fetta.


  • Looks good but I will have to look up what besan flour is?


  • A combination id never think to try but these look delicious. Love a quick easy snack for a hungry mumma.


  • These fritters look amazing. Thanks for sharing.


  • Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum. What else can I say?
