Ingredients for Fritters:

  • 1 zucchini
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 1 carrot
  • 100g Suluguni cheese, shredded
  • A bunch of spring onions, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, freshly ground, to taste
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons semolina
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Ingredients for Smoky Garlic Dip:

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried garlic powder


  1. Prepare the Vegetables: Grate the zucchini, potatoes, and carrot on the coarse side of a grater. Wrap the grated vegetables in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out the excess moisture. This step is crucial for crispy fritters.
  2. Mix the Fritter Batter: In a large bowl, combine the drained vegetables, shredded Suluguni cheese, spring onions, and minced garlic. Stir in the beaten eggs, semolina, and season with salt and pepper. Mix until the batter is well combined.
  3. Fry the Fritters: Heat a generous amount of vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, drop spoonfuls of the batter into the pan, flattening them slightly with the back of the spoon. Fry for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crispy. Drain on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  4. Make the Smoky Garlic Dip: While the fritters are frying, prepare the dip. In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, smoked paprika powder, and dried garlic powder until smooth.
  5. Serve: Arrange the vegetable fritters on a serving plate and serve with the smoky garlic dip on the side. Enjoy while warm and crispy!


  • For an extra cheesy flavor, mix some cheese into the dip as well.
  • Feel free to adjust the spices in the dip according to your taste preferences, adding more smoked paprika for a deeper smoky flavor or more dried garlic for a stronger garlic punch.
