Zucchini Fritters: A Crispy and Delicious Snack

If you're searching for a delightful way to incorporate more vegetables into your diet, look no further than these delectable Zucchini Fritters. Bursting with flavour and crispy goodness, these fritters are perfect for any time of day, whether you're enjoying them as a snack, appetiser, or light meal. Let's dive into the recipe:


  • 2 medium zucchinis, grated
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup of plain flour
  • 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • Olive oil for frying


  1. Prepare the Zucchini: Start by grating the zucchinis using a box grater. Once grated, place the zucchini in a clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth and squeeze out any excess moisture. This step is crucial to ensure your fritters are crispy and not soggy.

  2. Mix the Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the grated zucchini, chopped onion, minced garlic, plain flour, grated Parmesan cheese, beaten eggs, baking powder, salt, and black pepper. Stir the ingredients together until they are well combined and form a thick batter.

  3. Heat the Oil: Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. You want enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan and create a shallow frying environment for the fritters.

  4. Fry the Fritters: Once the oil is hot, spoon the zucchini batter into the pan, using about 2 tablespoons of batter for each fritter. Flatten the batter slightly with the back of a spoon to form small patties. Fry the fritters in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the pan, until they are golden brown and crispy on both sides, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.

  5. Drain and Serve: As the fritters finish cooking, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil. Serve the Zucchini Fritters hot, garnished with a sprinkle of extra Parmesan cheese and a dollop of Greek yogurt or sour cream, if desired.


  • For extra flavour, you can add chopped fresh herbs such as parsley, dill, or basil to the batter.
  • If you prefer a gluten-free option, you can substitute the plain flour with almond flour or gluten-free all-purpose flour.
  • Leftover Zucchini Fritters can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat them in the oven or toaster oven until warmed through before serving.

With their crispy exterior and tender, flavourful interior, these Zucchini Fritters are sure to impress even the pickiest eaters. Enjoy them as a delightful snack or as part of a larger meal for a tasty and nutritious treat!
