Susanne’s Adventskalender Challenge – 16. Dezember 2022

Kali Orexi!

Auf dem Adventskärtle für heute steht: Lustiges in Griechenland!

Da fällt mir erstmal gar nix zu ein …


Aber dann denk ich, hey, da steht ja gar nichts was oder wer da Lustiges erleben muss/soll!  Aber ich weiß es jetzt! Und zwar tanzt mein Herz lustig und vor Freude, denn da ist mein absolut liebstes griechisches, deshalb in Englisch, Original-Rezept von:



Und los geht´s:

  • 4 (about 800 g) zucchini, washed and shredded with the skin on
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1 cup (150g) crumbled feta
  • 1 and 1/2 cups (190 g) breadcrumbs, plus more for coating
  • 1 and 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • vegetable oil for frying


  1. Place the grated zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with salt ( 1/4 teaspoon) and mix it well with your hands. The salt will help draw out the liquid. You will be surprised to see how much liquid will be released. Place the colander over a bowl to catch the liquid. Let it drain for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Take the zucchini out of the colander in small bunches. Squeeze the bunches with your hands to remove as much of the remaining liquid as you can. Discard the liquid and place the strained zucchini in a dry bowl.
  3. Add the sliced scallions, mint, feta and the pepper. Mix well. Add the beaten eggs, bread crumbs and salt. Mix until combined.
  4. Heat the oil in a pot over medium- high heat.
  5. Form the zucchini mixture into round walnut sized balls and place on a tray.
  6. Pour some breadcrumbs into a shallow bowl and roll each zucchini ball to coat all around.
  7. Fry them in the oil about 5-6 minutes until golden brown all around. Place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain the excess oil.
  8. Serve them with tzatziki sauce or marinara. Enjoy!
