Zucchini Corn Fritters Recipe | Vegetable Fritters

Wishing you all a very happy new year 2022. May the new year brings much happiness, peace and prosperity, and the world will be a safe place again. Today I am sharing a simple fritter recipe which I got from a local supermarket magazine. The original recipe uses halloumi along with corn and zucchini. I didn't have it in hand and I substituted it with grated cheese. It tasted so delicious and I love the addition of spring onion. It can be whipped super quickly for an evening snack. 
Grated Zucchini - 2 Cups 
Sweet Corn Kernels - 1 Cup 
Chopped Spring Onion - 1/2 Cup
Shredded Cheese - 1/4 Cup
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp 
Egg - 1 
All purpose flour - 1/2 cup 
Olive oil - as required to shallow fry 
Salt  - as needed 
Pepper - as needed
1. Measure 1 cup of corn kernels and keep it ready. You can use frozen corn, tinned corn or fresh corn. Since I used fresh corn, I steamed the corn and then removed the corn kernels.
2. Meanwhile, wash and grate the zucchini. Squeeze out extra water content from the zucchini using a clean kitchen towel.
3. Chop the spring onions finely. In a pan, add half a teaspoon of olive oil and sauté the spring onion. Along with this add the ginger garlic paste.  
4. Sauté it until the raw smell leaves and switch off the flame. In a wide mixing bowl, combine the squeezed zucchini, corn, fried spring onion, cheese, egg and flour. Season with salt and pepper.
5. Shallow fry until golden brown in olive oil. I used an ice-cream scoop to measure equal quantities and then flattened, molded it into round patties using the back of a spoon.
6. Flip and cook the other side as well. Drain it in kitchen towel.
Serve it warm with sour cream. I served it with creamy Greek yogurt.
Points to remember:
  • You can replace the cheese with grated halloumi or grated paneer.  
  • Just shallow fry it in low flame and flip it only after the golden brown crispy base is formed, otherwise it might break.
  • The flour helps to hold everything together and I shallow fried it in my cast iron pan that  was non sticky. So, you might need to fry it in a pan which doesn't stick.
  • The original recipe calls for self raising flour. So, if needed you can add 1/4 tsp of baking powder. But I didn't use it.
Warm Regards,
