We just bought a fryer, we don't eat fried food regularly but enjoy them occasionally. This sounds like a perfect treat!! Touch of mint is a nice, fresh idea.

Whisk the egg whites until stiff but not dry and using a tablespoon gently fold into the batter.
Do you do this egg white bit AFTER you mixed the batter with courgettes?
