Ingredients

  • 250g natural yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 60g pine nuts, toasted
  • 100g raisins, chopped
  • 1 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 12 zucchini flowers, ends trimmed and stamens removed
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 350ml beer

Method

To make the labna, mix yoghurt and olive oil together and place in a large strainer or colander lined with muslin or a clean tea towel. Stand it over a bowl in the fridge for two or three nights. Stir through pine nuts, raisins and parsley and season well. Use a piping bag or small spoon to fill flowers with the mixture. Pre-heat a deep fryer to 180C. Mix flour and beer together. Dip flowers in the batter and fry until golden brown. Alternatively, shallow fry them in two centimetres of vegetable oil, turning the flowers once. Drain on paper towel, season with more salt. Eat immediately.
