Ingredients (25 zucchini flowers)

  • ~25 zucchini blossoms
  • 200g (7.1oz) feta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 3-4 parsley sprigs
  • 3-4 dill sprigs
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 can of beer 330ml
  • 150g (5.3oz) flour
  • corn oil for frying
In a small frying pan, put the fennel seed to roast, without grease, for too little to show off its aromas and beat it to the mortar to crumble.
In medium sized bowls, put slice and fork with crush. Add parsley and dill finely chopped, eggs, pepper and fennel seeds.
Stir well and leave the filling to the tip for a while.
Take one by one the prepared flowers in your hand and fill them using a small spoon with the mixture of the feta cheese.
Turn the edges out of the petals of the flower to cover the stuffing. Place them vertically on a silicone disc or surface next to each other.
In a wide bowl, pour the flour and add the beer a little bit, stirring until it has become a thick slurry, without lumps.
To fry them, add vegetable oil to the pan over a moderate heat, and when it gets hot, dump the stuffed blossom into the porridge and put it in the pan.
Turn them once, since one side has taken a red colour. Touch them on absorbent kitchen towels to drain off the odorous oil.
