Zucchini Fritters

duration20 mins


  • 1 lb zucchini
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cornflour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup ice-cold water
  • Vegetable oil , for frying


  1. Prepare the zucchinis: wash, dry, and trim off the ends. Slice them into sticks, about 2 ½ inches long and ½ inch wide. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the flour and cornflour in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and mix well. Add the ice-cold water, stirring until the mixture is thicker than the consistency of heavy cream.
  3. Heat about 2 ½ inches of oil to 400°F in a deep frying pan. Start frying: dip a zucchini stick into the flour batter, and fry in the oil until golden and crispy. Be careful not to fry too many sticks at a time—it will reduce the oil’s temperature. Remove the fritters with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Serve immediately.
