• 5 ripe and firm tomatoes
  • 2 dry onions, finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions with their leaves, finely chopped
  • ½ bunch of fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh oregano, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chili flakes
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 cup spicy kefalotyri cheese, grated (or crumbled hard feta)
  • 4-5 tbsp self-rising flour
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper


  1. Wash and finely chop the tomatoes and place them in a bowl.
  2. Add the dry and fresh onions and stir to soften them with the tomatoes.
  3. Add the oregano, thyme, mint, cheese, egg, chili flakes, salt, and pepper.
  4. Gradually mix in the flour until you get a loose batter.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a pan.
  6. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture into the hot oil and fry until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Place the fritters on absorbent paper to drain excess oil.
