3/4 cup self-rising flour
2 large eggs -- beaten
1/4 cup milk
10 1/2 ounces zucchini
2 tablespoons fresh thyme
1 tablespoons oil
1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper

Preparation / Directions:

Sift the self-rising flour into a large bowl and make a well in the center. Add the eggs to the well, and using a wooden spoon, gradually fold in the flour. Slowly add the milk to the mixture; stirring constantly to form a thick batter. Wash the zucchini. Grate the zucchini over a paper towel placed in a bowl to absorb some of the juices. Add the zucchini, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste to the batter, and mix thoroughly. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based skillet. Taking a tablespoon of the batter for a medium-size fritter or half a tablespoon of batter for a smaller- size fritter, spoon the mixture into the hot oil and cook, in batches, for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove the fritters with a slotted spoon and drain thoroughly on absorbent paper towels. Keep each batch of fritters warm in the oven while making the rest. Serve hot. VARIATION: Try adding 1/2 teaspoon dried, crushed chiles in with the zucchini mixture. NOTES: These tasty little fritters are great with roasted bell peppers as hors d'oeuvres for a cocktail part
