Courgette Fritters with Chives

I told you so many times how much I love courgette fritters, did I? This is one of my top-5 breakfast things. I make courgette fritters at least twice a week. I never get enough of them. Also they are so easy to make! It should be a healthier version with oven-roasting, but I like to fry them on non-stick pan and always add some dill or chives. I recommend to serve courgette fritters with soured cream or creme fraiche. Have a look!

I don’t remember the first time I tasted these fritters, but it was my granny’s everyday dish. She made those fritters very often.
I remember her adding too much flour so she ended up having something looking like pancakes with grated courgette. Just flour and almost no courgette at all. I love courgettes very much and that was why I didn’t like those pancakes with barely noticeable courgette hint.
Long after that when I started to live together with my (now husband) Nick I decided to make something very “courgettish” with no flour. And I made these fritters which became mine and his favourites, truly.
