Step 1.

Grate courgettes. Squeeze the gratings to get rid of excess water and then pat them down with kitchen roll. Add them to a bowl.

Step 2.

Add a teaspoon of sesame oil, a teaspoon of Chinese 5 spice, 3 chopped spring onions, a tsp of chilli flakes, salt and pepper. Add cornflour, plain flour and an egg.

Step 3.

Mix everything together with your hands.

Step 4.

Heat a pan and pour in some vegetable oil. When it is hot, add a heaped tbsp of the courgette mix. Flatten it out and cook for 4 minutes on one side. Once crisp, flip the fritter.

Step 5.

In the meantime, get your poached eggs on. Boil some water lightly. Whisk the water to create a whirlpool and add your egg to the edge of the whirl. It should turn the whites around the yolk and leave you with the perfect poached egg. It needs about 3 minutes to be perfect.

Step 6.

Stack up your fritters and top with the poached eggs. Add a small drop of sesame oil and tuck in! Enjoy!

Once you have added the fritter to the pan, don’t move it about. Let it sit there to get nice and crispy.
