Carrot and Courgette Fritters

Sometimes it is so hard to find things to put on the table and especially when some of your kids are a little fussy ....also i hate to throw out veg that might start to go off a little because they didnt get used  ....till just recently when my friend was here and mentioned that she made some carrot and courgette fritters and that all her family loved it ..... now the amazing thing was that i had been browsing for a while and a few of the sites i came across had the courgette fritters and i really wanted to try them but i was afraid  that they would not be eaten and i would end up throwing them out ... but after listen to my friend i decided to biet the bullet and masha`allah i`m so happy i did ... they have become a favorite in my house so much that dh loves them too ... now i couldnt remember exactly what my friend added to her but i made mine like this

2 big courgettes
About 4/5 carrots (this depends on size )
2 eggs
about 3 tbsp of flour .. (you can add more if you feel the need)
black pepper
and 1 small onion

all you do is grate carrots and courgettes and if you like place in a cloth and squeeze out the water form them.... then dice the onion really small add your eggs and flour along with the pepper and salt and mix well

then all you have to do is fry them ...

NOTE: when placing the spoon full amounts into the oil dont press them down leave them as they are ....

and thats it simple and easy and yummmmyyy ... go on give it a try


  1. MashAllah this looks yummy and easy enough for me, I'll have to give it a try. Looks like it would be a great thing to pack for my daughter's snack time at preschool.

  2. oh yes it is very easy and you could dd garlic to it too and play around with it .... and yes it`s even nice cold so i think it would be great for your daughter too ....jazak`allah khair for stopping by

  3. I will definitely give these a go, perfect snack food for a vegetarian thank you! Many years ago I lived in the south of Italia, and the people there don't eat a lot of meat (compared to the Irish & English!) and my friend's mother made something similar without the carrots. I loved them so much, she would make them often...just for me :)

  4. oh masha`allah dolly ... it was kate that gave me this recipe and i know you can also make it with just the courgettes

  5. Assalamu aleikum

    Did this one as well!! Dh loved it and for me is the main thing as he is a fussy eater.
    I loved them too.
    Once again thanks for your ideas.


    1. oh masha`allah aisha ... this is great .... they can also be done just with courgettes and without the carrots ... or one day we had very little veg left so i ended up doing the carrots and courgettes and potatoes and they were lovely too masha`allah

Guest post From Halal Home Cooking ....Pancakes with a twist

As-Salaamu Alaykum I'm Umm Hamza from  Halal Home Cooking  today I'm sharing a recipe for a breakfast staple with a twist. Pancakes are my children's favourite breakfast food. They will gladly eat cereal with milk, creamy porridge and jam/jelly doughnuts but unlike those aforementioned staples that only get half to three quarters eaten because A. they turn soggy B. get's cold and sticky or c. no jam left, pancakes will  always  be eaten, no excuses. Once you've honed your basic pancake recipe you are free to experiment with flavour combinations and that's exactly how these chai spiced chocolate and tahini pancakes came about ma sha Allah Source : I found this chai spiced latte powder whilst searching 'halal' during my on-line grocery shopping. I'm always hoping when hitting that search button new products will pop up and this time it d

Pocasi/ split green pea soup

Asalamu alikum Well it sure has been a long time since i posted so i thought let me share this Pocasi recipe with you while i remember This soup is made from split green peas first i wash the peas and then add them to my pot (i used a pressure cooker) i added onion ... garlic..... i diced up carrots ...courgettes...and potato into  really small bits and added to the pot i also added black pepper....salt ...cumin...and razel hanut.... fill with water and placed lid on  and allowed to cook about 30 to 40 mins in total ... then let the pressure out and open then  stir.... if you need more water add and allow to cook towards the end add some tomato puree and allow to thicken up a little .... when i make this i do not use oil and i should say that this type of soup will continue to thicken and even the next day you will need to add more water to thin out ... but masha`allah is a really nice soup

Pizza Roll

Asalamu Alikum For months my oven hasn't worked and all of a sudden it was working again so the first thing i made was pizza roll ... while doing this i was teaching my daughter my 13 year old how to do this as my 15 year old already knows how to this is basically the samr as the homemade pizza i make only the sauce is a little different ... all i do is use tomato puree and add spices of my choice and then i thin it out to make it easier to spread it is roll out like normal pizza here is my recipe for that you can add any topping and then just take the side and roll the dough till it's like a log ... then cut into rounds and place on tray ... i will add cheese on top as well as the cheese that is inside and then bake for about 15 to 20 mins
