Feta Koussa



Koussa fritters (aka 3ejjeh) is what my mom used to make using the leftover koussa pulp after making stuffed koussa, but I love the fritters so much I’d eat them any day.

Served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, this recipe is so versatile and pleases all my eaters at home. The trick is to squeeze out the water of the koussa really well!
