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.
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
oil for frying
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.
