Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. Squeeze the zucchinis to remove their extra water.
  2. In a bowl mix all the ingredients except those of the breading.
  3. Place the bowl in the freezer for ½ hour.
  4. Take it out and make small balls.
  5. Cover them with flour, then with egg and finally with the breadcrumbs.
  6. Place the balls for ½ hour to an hour in the refrigerator.
  7. In a deep pot pour olive oil or any other oil you use in medium high heat.
  8. Start frying the balls in batches, making sure that you don’t add too many, so as to be able to turn them carefully without letting the filling come out.
  9. Remove, let them rest for three minutes and serve.
  10. You can serve them with tzatziki or any other sauce.
  11. I ate them plain as they were so delicious on their own I didn’t need any side for them.
