  • 0.5 Kg or 1 pound zucchini grated
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1 spring onion sliced
  • 1 tbsp. black pepper freshly powdered
  • 5 tbsp. all-purpose flour or maida
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil


  1. Grate the zucchini. Add salt and keep aside for 30 minutes. It will release water. Drain all the water and squeeze with your hands to remove as much moisture as you can. Keep aside.
  2. Mix all the ingredients except olive oil with the zucchini and form a thick batter.
  3. Heat oil in a pan. Make patties by putting 1 tbsp. of mixture on the griddle and then pressing it down to spread it out to make flat patties. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side till golden brown.
  4. Your crispy zucchini fritters are ready to serve. Serve hot with a spicy dip or ketchup.

Recipe Notes

  1. If you don’t squeeze out most water from your zucchini, then you will end up having too much moisture in the batter and your zucchini fritters will be soggy.
  2. Don’t add any additional salt because cheese has a fair bit of salt.
  3. You can use any processed cheese. Cheese make the fritters crispy.
  4. You can also add ¼ cup corn kernels to this batter for more taste.
  5. You can add herbs of your choice to the batter as well.
