Zucchini Fritters

Neither we’ve idea how a zucchini plant is nor about the produce a plant can give. So, we planted several zucchini plant in our backyard. As a result we are getting a large amount of zucchinis. Now it’s really a headache to me, how to consume all of them. I’m trying to innovate recipes with zucchinis to make interesting. At least no one will squeeze nose when I put the plate with some zucchini item before the family members. So, I’ve tried to make something like onion fritter using zucchini. The zucchini fritters were indeed really delicious. 


Ingredients:
One big zucchinis (or two small ones)
One very small onion
One inch ginger
Two-three green chili (you can add more, if you want more hot)
Salt to taste
Half tsp. chili powder
Pinch of turmeric powder
Enough besan (Bengal gram flour) to make a tight paste
oil for deep frying
Lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, and black salt for serving
Method:
Finely chop the zucchinis. I made a mistake, I cut them in little thicker pieces. Finely chop the onion. Grate the ginger. Take a big bowl, then mix all the items, except beasn. Keep the mixture for 10-15 minutes, covering with a lid. In this 15 minutes juice will be come out from zucchini. So, you need not add any water to make a paste. Fold the mixture and add besan little by little until the mixture becomes a thigh paste. Then heat one cup of oil in a heavy bottomed wok. Wait until the oil is smoking hot. Take golf ball size paste and fry them . Fry 2-3 one at a time until red.
serving:
Take a patter. Spread 3-4 lettuce leaves. Stack the fritter on the leaves. Thinly slice tomatoes and cucumbers. Arrange them around the stack of fritter. Sprinkle black salt over the patter. Serve hot.
