Zucchini Fritters with a hint of Sage

When Meeta of Whats for Lunch Honey announced the Ingredients for her next Monthly Mingle as Zucchini and Sage I was thrilled because I already knew what I could make. And the best part was that it is a very very simple recipe and tastes great. My son who had never eaten Zucchini till then loved these fritters and he actually asked me to make them again after a week. Now without rambling any further about it I'll get on with the recipe. But before that I'll quickly thank Meeta for this event and choosing these ingredients.

They are great as a starter. Alternatively you can sandwich a fritter between two slices of bread and have it for lunch. Thats what my son did.

Oooh! I almost forgot. I won't be around for a week or so now. Going on a week long holiday to Switzerland.Hope I come back with some great pics to show off.Bye Bye.

Rooma and Prema, You can substitute the egg with 2 to 3 tblsps of roasted semolina and some water. This will also bind the mixture well.
