  • 25 gms Rice Flour 1/4 Cup any kind
  • 1 cup Water
  • 3 tbs Oil 2 Tbs + 1 tbs divided (of your choice)
Make the Batter:
  1. Take a large bowl. Put chickpea flour and rice flour in it per the quantities mentioned above.
  2. Add the spices – cumin seeds, turmeric, cayenne powder, garam masala, salt and lemon juice.
  3. Now add 1 tbs oil and wisk all contents in the bowl.

  5. Add cilantro and whisk again. Final batter will be slightly thin.
  6. Pre-heat the frying pan or griddle at low heat.
  7. Once the pan is ready, start placing the batter dipped zucchini, one by one, on the pan / griddle.
  8. Keep the heat low and cover the pan/griddle with lid let for approximately 2 minutes.

  9. Flip the zucchini fritters to the other side once little brown from bottom and let them get crisp from other side.
  10. Nice golden brown color means fritters are cooked. Transfer the pan fried fritters to a mesh. Keeping them out of excess steam prevents them from getting soggy.

  11. Pan Fry all the zucchini fritters similarly and take them out on mesh surface similar to cooling rack.
  12. Serve with your choice of dip.
