  • Heat olive oil to a depth of about 1/8 inch in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Drop batter, 1/4 cup at a time, into hot oil and flatten fritters gently with a spatula. Cook until golden brown on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

I had problems with these fritters staying together. Had to double the egg and flour to actually make something like a "batter" and even still they didn't stay together well and were nearly impossible to keep together when turning. There's something "off" with the batter ingredients in this one...and btw one should NEVER use olive oil to fry with!! Try coconut oil goes nicely with the curry:) Read More

Really good way to use the mountains of zucchini & corn from the garden. I added a jalapeno a red hot cherry pepper and about a half cup of flour. I think next time I might add a bit of cayenne to give it even a bit more kick. I had either too hot or too much oil. It was popping like crazy so be careful! Read More

We really liked this recipe. I read and applied many of the suggestions. I used cooked corn on the cob, cuts down on liquid. Amped up spices to 1 tsp curry, 1/2 tsp garam masala, and nearly tsp salt, few chopped up pickled jalepeno slices, and 6 shakes of red pepper. I doubled flour to 1/2 C and then chilled for several hours. Even after squeezing the zucchini there was still alot of liquid which I poured off after refrigerating. I fried in coconut oil which didn't burn and spatter and cooked evenly. I served with yogurt mixed which freshly chopped mint. Nice side dish and easy. Read More

pretty easy recipe but I totally forgot the corn. I pumped up the curry powder to about 1.5 Tbs and topped with a homemade ranch style sauce and diced roasted red peppers. they were about 1/2 inch thick and took about 4 minutes a side over MH heat. Tasty Read More

Good recipe but added about 1 cup of panko crumbs and omitted the curry for the kids. My daughter is the pickiest eater ever and loved this. My son is shoveling it in. Read More

Not very flavorful - these would probably taste much better with besan (chickpea flour) instead of regular flour. Read More
