What is Zucchini/Courgette

Zucchini or Courgette is a summer squash. It is rich in water and has almost no fat. A rich source of essential vitamins, low in carbs makes it an excellent nutrient-dense food to be included in one’s diet. Zucchini has a delicate flavour and requires a little cooking.

Things that can be made using Zucchini

Zoodles are one of the common thing using Zucchini. Zoodles are Zucchini noodles. Zucchini can be easily cut with a spiralizer to make noodles. I have once made this along with some ripe avocado, lemon and it turned out super delicious. I have to yet post out a recipe of the same.

Due to its high water content they are well suited for bread. And yes as you might have already guessed, I do a lot of baking with Zucchini. Zucchini chocolate Wholewheat Bread/Cake is one of my favourites and I love to sneak in this vegetable in the bread. I have already made a few recipes with Zucchini like, Zucchini, Carrot and Spring Onion Vegetable SandwichZucchini, Brinjal Pancake, Cauliflower & Zucchini Koftas, Zucchini/Courgette Halwa, Zucchini Paratha/Thepla


Zucchini/Courgette Fritters

I have made this Zucchini/Courgette Fritters as I wanted something quick and easy snack for my son as well as something light for my tea time. This fritters can be assembled in as less than 5 mins and the rest is the cooking process which is also very less. I have not added any egg or cheese in this recipe but I have used gluten free rice flour to give it a body and add a bit of crunch. One can fry them too by making bhajias or pakodas, but I have shallow fried them. I have literally used just a teaspoon of oil in around 3-4 fritters.

I love to make different shapes for the kid’s. It becomes easier to feed them, and with such kind of batters it is very easy to do so. Check out below my little mini mouse shape fritter.

The Challenge

I am sharing this with our group “Foodies_RedoingOldPost” where we would be updating our old posts with content or pics every 2 weeks. I created this group as it is very important to update our old post. At times we are in rush to click or are 100 percent not happy with the post. It is also an opportunity for us to go and revisit the recipe to check if over a period of time if we have modified the recipe.

So for the Sixth week of #Foodies_RedoingOldPost_6 (23-Aug-2019) , I am updating my Zucchini/Courgette Fritters recipe with content and pics. My earlier update was Sonth (Saunth) using Jaggery | Tamarind Chutney , Sada Dosa and Green Coriander Chutney, Paneer Paratha .
