Recipe

Ejjeh Kusa

Some people like to add cinnamon to this particular ejjeh, a summertime favorite when zucchini are in season.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 zucchini or yellow squash, coarsely grated (shredding disc of food processor may be used)
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 onions, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil

Directions

1. To extract water from the zucchini, place it in a colander and press it down against the perforated surface.

2. Combine the zucchini, eggs, onions, allspice, salt, and cinnamon, if desired, in a medium mixing bowl. Mix well.

3. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. When the oil sizzles upon contact with a droplet of water, drop 1 tablespoon of the egg batter into the pan. Flatten the mound of batter slightly with the back of a spoon. Continue adding as many mounds of the batter as the skillet will allow. Fry for 2 minutes, or until golden, turning once. Drain the fritters on paper towels. Repeat this process with the remaining batter, and if necessary, add more oil.

    Rather than number of zucchini--how about weight or volume?? That would help --as we know squash can be tiny or baseball bats!!!
