Our answer

Nigella's Courgette Fritters (from NIGELLA SUMMER) are versatile enough to be served for brunch, lunch or as a light supper. The fritter batter doesn't contain any leavening so could be made in advance. However the courgettes can let out extra liquid as they stand in the batter, which could make it too thin.

We suggest making up the batter without the grated courgettes. Grate the courgettes and dry them on a tea towel, then transfer them to a separate bowl. Cover and refrigerate both the batter and courgettes for up to one day. When you are ready to cook, give the batter a quick stir then lift the grated courgettes out of their bowl and into the batter, leaving any excess liquid behind. Mix until just combined, then fry as described in the recipe.
