Instructions

  1. Using your hands, squeeze as much moisture from cucumber as possible. Combine cucumber, yoghurt and shredded mint in a small bowl. Season tzatziki with salt and pepper.
  2. Place chickpeas in a large bowl. Using a potato masher, lightly crush chickpeas. Add corn, zucchini, shallots and eggs and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spoon four ¼-cup amounts of chickpea mixture into pan. Cook fritters for 2–3 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining oil and batter to make 12 fritters.
  4. Prepare chapattis following packet instructions. Serve with fritters, tomatoes, olives, lemon wedges, tzatziki and extra mint.
