2.Add the salt,black pepper, cumin, turmeric and chilli powder and bicarbonate of soda to the flour and mix well.
3.Add the grated courgette,chopped coriander, ginger and 1 tablespoon oil to the flower mixture and mix well.( The moisture from the courgette should be enough to bind the mixture.)
4. Dust your hands with flower and make small patties of the mixture and place on an oiled tray.
5. Heat the oil in a large pan , when it is hot deep fry the courgette fritters in small batches on medium heat.
Drain on kitchen paper and serve with a spicy dip.
