Zucchini and feta balls

Here's the second recipe: zucchini and feta balls. I have eaten something similar at cafes and wondered how they did it! It is so, so easy.

1 medium zucchini
1/2 packet feta
1/3 cup plain flour
1/3 cup breadrumbs
1 egg
chopped eschallots
chopped herbs - sage, parsley, thyme

Grate zucchini and mix with egg, eschallots, herbs and chopped feta.  Stir in flour and breadcrumbs. Should be just dry enough to form into balls. Add more breadcrumbs if necessary.
Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer.
Form balls then roll in extra breadcrumbs. Fry until golden brown and crispy on the outside.
Drain on paper towels.

Enjoy with hot sauce or aioli.

These take about 10 minutes, are easy and actually work, so enjoy.
