  • 2 large courgettes
  • 2 carrots peeled
  • 1 medium-sized potato peeled
  • 1 medium-sized onion finely chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • cups plain flour
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ bunch fresh parsley finely chopped
  • ½ bunch fresh dill finely chopped
  • 1 dessertspoon dried mint
  • 1 dessertspoon chilli flakes optional
  • 1 dessertspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt & pepper


  • First of all, preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  • Grate your courgettes, carrots and potato and add to a large bowl.
  • Add your onion.
  • Mix the ingredients together and now add your parsley & dill and mix again.
  • Now sprinkle in the dried mint, chilli flakes and salt & pepper and mix.
  • Beat 4 eggs and pour these over your mixture before stirring everything together.
  • Now add your flour and baking powder to a sieve and sieve over your mixture.
  • Stir this in until all the flour is absorbed.
  • Pour the oil over the mixture and stir.
  • Now grease a baking tray of your choice and pour your mixture into the tray.
  • Spread around to the edges to make the thickness roughly even all over.
  • When your oven has reached the correct temperature, place your tray in the centre of the oven and bake for around 40-45 minutes.
  • When you think your oven baked potato and courgette fritters are cooked, prod the centre with a knife to check the mixture is set.
  • Allow to cool before cutting into slices.
  • Serve on its own or with natural yoghurt on the side.


  • Turkish oven baked potato and courgette fritters can be made without the potato. If you want to do this, substitute your potato for an extra courgette.
  • If you're in Turkey, baking powder is sold in sachets and is called kabartma tozu.
  • We cut our potato and courgette fritters into ten slices so we have said there are ten servings in this recipe. You can cut into smaller servings if you like.
  • As with all our recipes, the amount of calories per serving is a general guide. These will differ on serving size and variations in the amount of oil or flour you use, for example.
