when you have a three year old, a lot of food starts being referred to as a ‘nugget’. We always make these a day or two after we make mahshi with the pulp of the courgettes that have been cored out. they are utterly delicious and make a great lunch with a nice fil-fil dip and salad.
4 cups of courgette pulp
2 cups of plain flower
1 cup of corn flour
1 onion, peeled
2 garlic cloves, peeled
handful of fresh parsley
2 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
a few cups of vegetable oil to fry
put all the ingredients into a food processor and mix for 3-5 minutes until you get a good thick paste consistency.
put the vegetable oil into a frying pan and heat the oil.
using tablespoons, scoop nuggets of the mixture into the hot oil and fry for a few minutes on both sides until browned.
