Zucchini is available in the market fast all the year round. At first I was not clear what to do with these green veggies. But during the years we have found out various preparation methods for zucchini, from friends, from internet, from experimenting with this vegetable with other traditional preparation methods and the like. I must say that many of these preparations are tastier than the steamed zucchini which we tasted for the first time from a take away.
Here is the preparation method for Zucchini fritters.
Zucchini 2 large ones
Eggs 2 nos
Bread crumbs 2 – 3 Tablespoons
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil to fry
Thoroughly wash, clean and dry the zucchinis.
Cut the zucchinis in 1-2 cm thick round pieces.
Place them in a plate and sprinkle some salt over them and keep for 45 minutes allowing the excess water to flow out from the zucchini pieces.
Now beat the eggs in a shallow bowl. You can add some pepper powder and salt at this time if you prefer.
Heat oil in a pan.
Now take each of the zucchini pieces, dip in the egg mixture, then cover them with the bread crumbs in the plate and deep fry in the pan till golden brown in colour.
Remove from oil and serve along with tea, coffee or as a starter with suitable dips.
