Place the courgettes, potatoes and carrots in a colander, place kitchen towels or a cheese cloth over the top and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Sprinkle salt over the vegetables and let them drain for 15 minutes. Squeeze vegetable again in kitchen towels.
In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, vegetables, salt and pepper. Mix well. Stir in matzo meal, parsley and feta.
Heat vegetable oil in a large frying pan. Place vegetable mixture, formed into pancake sized cakes in hot oil and fry until golden brown on both sides. (Cook two to three minutes per side). Add more oil as needed to keep cakes frying up well. Drain on kitchen towels.
You can substitute in flour for matzo meal, if desired.
Apart from substituting plain flour I followed the recipe exactly, but what a disappointment
The cakes were bland, despite being well-seasoned, rubbery and generally not great. My sister has tried cooking them too (just in case it was me!) and found them to be equally disappointing. Not one we'll be trying again I'm afraid - 25 Aug 2012
