Fresh Flat Beans Fritter
(Taze Fasulye Mücveri - Ottoman Kitchen)
~200 g green flat beans, trimmed, cut in very thin slices
2-3 spring onions, finely chopped
1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1 tbsp dill, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
4 tbsp all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
Liquid oil for frying
Spring onion, sliced
First, boil the green beans for 3-4 minutes, drain. Let it cool down. Add all the remaining ingredients, with the eggs going in last (as it quickly makes the mixture watery) in a bowl using a spoon.
Pour some sunflower oil in a large skillet, about 1 cm deep. When the oil warms up, take a lump of the mixture (a couple large spoons' worth) and place it in the skillet. Fry each side approximately 3 minutes at medium-high heat. Then, place the pieces on a plate with a paper towel to soak up extra oil.
Garnish with spring onion and dill. Serve with a bit of yogurt on top of each piece - yogurt with garlic especially goes well. Flat Green Beans Mucver can also be a great sandwich for lunch:) I highly recommend it.
