ZUCCHINI CUTLETS

Photobucket

Zucchini is a healthy vegetable which is low in calorie but contains useful amount of folate, potassium, vitamin A and manganese. It is quite bland to consume on its own so you need to turn them into  snack or dessert to enjoy them. In this case I have prepared zucchini cutlets, one of  popular Indian fried snacks. These are great as an appetizer, afternoon snack with tea or a side dish with dinner.

ZUCCHINI  CUTLETS

250g  shredded zucchini squeeze the juice out
1/2 C rice flour
4 green chili chopped
1 onion  chopped
1 tsp cumin seed
1 tsp ginger minced
1/4 C  chopped coriander leaves
salt to taste
plain flour for coating
zucchini juice/water
oil for frying

METHOD

Squeeze out the water from the shredded zucchini, keep aside.

In a mixing bowl. combine zucchini, rice flour, green chili, cumin seed, ginger, coriander leaves and salt.

Sprinkle with zucchini juice if it is too dry. Shape into patties then coat with flour.

Heat a small amount of oil in a pan using medium heat,  slide in the cutlets and fry until golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper.

Serve with tomato/chili sauce.

I tried to make a courgette chocolate cake once, it didn't turn out very well :( but I'm sure this savoury version will be much better!

Medeja said...

Would it be ok to use plain flour instead of rice flour? or maybe corn flour?
These cutlets look so tempting :)
