Step 1

Grate the courgettes using a box grater or food processor. Squeeze out any excess moisture from the grated courgettes using a clean kitchen towel or paper towels.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, combine the grated courgettes, chopped onion, minced garlic, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, paprika, grated Parmesan cheese, beaten egg, and chopped parsley. Mix everything until well combined. The mixture should be thick enough to hold its shape, but if it's too dry, you can add a little more beaten egg.

Step 3

Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.

Step 4

Take a spoonful of the courgette mixture and drop it into the hot oil, then flatten it slightly with the back of the spoon. Repeat to add a few more fritters, but be sure not to overcrowd the pan.

Step 5

Fry the fritters for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until they turn golden brown and crispy. You may need to adjust the heat to avoid burning them.

Step 6

Once the fritters are cooked, remove them from the pan and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.

Step 7

For the yogurt dipping sauce, mix the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, chopped dill, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Stir well until everything is well combined.

Step 8

Serve the courgette fritters hot, accompanied by the refreshing yogurt dipping sauce on the side.
