Zucchini Fritters – Courgette Fritters

January 30, 2018 Kids BaySnacks / Starters  2 comments

Zucchini(in American English) or Courgette(in British English) is a summer squash veggie. I always had a doubt if both the names meant the same one. Finally googled it and found out. I get it here in the name of Courgette. Many of them know by the name Zucchini. I use it quite often in making Quesadilla. So this time tried this Zucchini Fritters for a change. It tasted awesome. It is a perfect after school snack for kids or even during tea time. I saw this recipe in a magazine and changed it a bit to suit our taste buds. These fritters will be crispy outside and soft inside. The best part is u can shallow fry this.

Idli/Dosa Milagai Podi or Chutney Powder is an item that is always available in my pantry. It is a must for idli/dosa even if I have any number of other side dishes like Tiffin Sambar or Coconut Chutney. I make sure that a fresh batch of this podi is refilled just before the old batch gets over. It goes well when combined with gingely oil or ghee. I had posted this recipe long time back. Now have updated with new pics and video as well. Do check my collection of side dishes for idli/dosa HERE.
