Thin Crispy Zucchini Fritters (Vegan + Glutenfree)

We have made them extra crisp and they are piping hot straight from our kitchen.thin-crispy-zucchini-fritters
Happy Friday Everyone ! It was quite a packed week for me and I’m so glad we have made it to the weekend.

The entire week, we had been eating pretty light (mostly smoothies / sandwiches / light curries) and had been looking forward to our weekend menu – which is slightly a variety of cheat food + healthy stuff.

And the first thing that came to my mind were these Thin Crispy Zucchini Fritters that just screams COMFORT Food to me.

I mean what’s there not to like about a Fried, Golden Crusted – Crispy Snack.…Absolutely Nothing, what do you think?

Thin-Crispy Zucchini Fritters Vegan-GlutenfreeI just couldn’t wait for the second they were ready, I had to bite into them and they were just perfect!!! The tastes is absolutely delicious and fried zucchini simply melts into your mouth.

So the batter actually prevents the zucchini to simply melt while frying, absolutely made in heaven kind of pairing 🙂

Now, to keep these Crispy Zucchini Fritters really crisp, I’ve added homemade rice flour (just pulse rice grain to a really fine consistency or you can always use store bought ones).


This Thin Crispy Zucchini Fritters recipe makes enough fritters to be shared between 2-3 people depending on how many you wanna eat and you’re absolutely welcome to eat them all by yourself – I PROMISE 🙂

The best part about them is that they can be prepped a night before, make the batter, slice that zucchini and keep them in the fridge.

Just fry them in the morning for your brunch or snack.

Some of you might wonder about the color, I’ve added a hint of turmeric to get this gorgeous golden color as It just gives me a feel of a very Gourmet Restaurant Style fritters, that are actually homemade.



I’m serving these fritters with a simple ketchup but please feel free to serve them with any sauce/dip of choice. They taste Fabulous with chilled dips too.

I hope you make them this weekend or pretty soon as they do deserve a place in your gorgeous family table 🙂

                                        Have a GREAT WEEKEND Ya’ll – XoXo
