• 2 marrows, grated
• 1 tbsp plain flour
• 3 egg whites, beaten

1. Place the grated marrows in the centre of a clean towel and wring out as much excess water as possible, or until they are quite dry. Sift the flour into a bowl and whisk in the egg whites until smooth. Add the marrows and remaining ingredients, then mix well.
2. Heat a large frying pan and take a heaped tablespoon of the mixture and drop it into the pan, flattening it out slightly with the back of the spoon. Leave to cook for a couple of minutes until the fritter is brown on the bottom, then flip over and cook for another couple of minutes.
