Kat’s Tasty Kolokithokeftedes Recipe

You asked so here it is!

Kat’s delicious Kolokithokeftedes (Fried Zucchini Balls)


1 kg zucchinis, grated

1 cup flour
1 red or white onion, grated
2 spring onions, finely chopped
2 tbsps fresh mint, finely chopped
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup feta cheese, grated
salt and freshly ground pepper
oil for frying


Step 1. Grate the zucchini and place in a colander with some salt. Squeeze with your hands to get rid of the excessive water. Leave them for 30 minutes and squeeze them again.

Step 2. Into a large bowl add all the other ingredients and mix well with your hands, until combined and the mixture is firm enough to make the balls. Add a little more flour if needed.

Step 3. In a pan add enough olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan, and heat the oil into medium-high heat.

Step 4. Dip a tablespoon in some water and spoon out some of the mixture into the hot oil.

Step 5. Fry the kolokithokeftedes for about 2-3 minutes on each side, until nicely colored. Place them on paper towel, to absorb the extra oil.

Serve with yummy lamb and green salad. Enjoy!

Just as an FYI if you are wondering (or care in the slightest) I am Tracy and I’m here because Kat likes blogging but can never remember her goddamn login. So she literally pays me to blog the things she posts on social media. Cool, huh? But if you want more you’d better go visit her socials. Do it!
