Ingredients You'll Need
Here's a quick overview of the ingredients for our Zucchini Fritters:
- 2 medium-sized zucchinis
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- Rallis Olive Oil for frying
Now, let's dive into the cooking process. Follow these simple steps to create your Zucchini Fritters:
- Grate and Drain the Zucchini:
- Begin by grating the zucchinis and placing the grated zucchini in a colander with a sprinkle of salt to release excess moisture.
- Squeeze Out Excess Moisture:
- After 10 minutes, squeeze out as much moisture as possible from the grated zucchini.
- Prepare the Dipping Sauce:
- In a separate bowl, combine Greek yogurt or sour cream, lemon juice, and chopped basil for the dipping sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
- Mix the Fritter Batter:
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the grated zucchini, minced garlic, Parmesan cheese, chopped basil, and beaten eggs. Mix well.
- Add Flour and Seasoning:
- Gradually add all-purpose flour to the zucchini mixture, stirring continuously until the batter is well combined. Season with black pepper.
- Fry the Fritters:
- Heat Rallis Olive Oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drop portions of the zucchini batter into the hot oil, flattening them slightly with the back of a spoon. Fry until golden brown.
- Drain and Serve:
- Remove the cooked fritters from the skillet and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess oil.
