A crunchy, tasty snack pack of zucchini fritters with potato and paneer, it is a real fun food in both preparing and eating it. It has a unique taste because of the zucchini and the known goodness of paneer and potato. It is really great to make for fun times, parties and picnics and will really make things better. So let’s start—
- Zucchini – 200 gms.
- Gram Flour or Besan – 250 gms.
- Rice Flour – 25 gms.
- Onion – 1.
- Green Chillies – 2.
- Potato – 1.
- Ginger-Garlic Paste – 1 tsp.
- Salt – According to taste.
- Panir – 1 slice.
- Garam Masala – 1 tsp.
- Red Chilly Powder – 1 tsp.
- Peanuts – 2 tbsp.
- Coriander Leaves – A handful.
- Cheese – 1/2 cup.(optional).
Wash, scrape and grate the zucchini. Boil, peel and mash the potato. Finely chop the onions, green chilies, coriander leaves. Grate the paneer cube and crush the peanuts coarsely in a mortar-pestle or spice grinder.
Take a bowl. To it add the given amounts of gram and rice flour, remaining spices, i.e, salt, garam masala and red chilly powder. Now add to this mixture the grated zucchini, onions, mashed potato, green chilies, peanuts, coriander leaves, grated paneer and some grated cheese, though the last ingredient is optional. Now adding some water make a batter so that you can form small pakoras out of it on your hand.
Heat oil in a kadhai and when it is hot start dropping small balls of the above-made batter into it. You can flatten the balls as I have done and give it some other shapes too. Fry them till browned and crisp.
Our crunchy and tasty Zucchini Fritters are ready. Serve it with yoghurt, mayo dip, mustard sauce or any other dip that you like.
