Ingredients (for about 15 buñuelos):
4 flour tablespoons
300 gr feta cheese
12 mint leaves
- Start grating 2 zucchini using a grater not too thick. Add salt to them and let rest some minutes.
- Cut an onion into strips, add olive oil in a pan, when the oil is hot add the onion, salt and pepper. Stir frequently and cook for 5-6 minutes.
- With your hands squeeze the zucchini so they drop as water as possible. Put the zucchini in a bowl and add 2 eggs, feta cheese shredded and 12 mint leaves chopped.This mint will give a fresh flavor, which is nice in something fried. Mix well all ingredients, add the onion and mix again. Finally add 4 flour tablespoons and mix it
- Add vegetable oil in a pan. To know if the temperature is good to fry, insert a wooden spoon in the oil, if bubbles appear around the spoon then the temperature isright. Add portions of the mix with a tablespoon. Cook them for 3 minutes, turning several time so they cook uniformly. Let rest the buñuelos over a paper towel. Wait
some seconds before adding more to the pan, so the oil rises again its temperature.
