Zucchini Pancakes

Mucver (articulated moosh-vair) are fragile, fresh zucchini hotcakes famous in Turkey. This adaptation has destroyed zucchini, yet in addition little billows of feta and a sprinkling of minced new dill and scallions. They are fresh outwardly, delicate inside and unobtrusively herbaceous. The secret to making the flapjacks fresh and not saturated is to extract all the water from the zucchini prior to blending it in with different fixings. A little power is required.

Ingredients:

β€’ 3 medium zucchini (about 1 pound)

β€’ Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place zucchini in a colander over a bowl, and mix with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Allow to drain for five minutes.
β€’ Transfer to a cloth kitchen towel, and squeeze hard to extract as much moisture as possible. Squeeze a second time; volume will shrink to about half the original.
β€’ In a large mixing bowl, combine zucchini and eggs. Using a fork, mix well. Add flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, olive oil, feta, scallions, dill and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Mix well, add baking powder, and mix again.
β€’ Place a cast iron skillet or other heavy skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and heat until shimmering.
β€’ Place heaping tablespoons of zucchini batter in pan several inches apart, allowing room to spread.
β€’ Flatten them with a spatula if necessary; pancakes should be about 3/8 inch thick and about 3 inches in diameter.
β€’ Fry until golden on one side, then turn and fry again until golden on other side. Repeat once or twice, frying about 5 to 6 minutes total, so pancakes get quite crisp.
β€’ Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels, and keep warm in oven. Continue frying remaining batter, adding more oil to pan as needed.
β€’ Serve hot.

β€’ In a small bowl, combine yogurt, garlic and salt. Mix well, and serve on the side or on pancakes.
