Zucchini Patties...FF-TT # 2

Print Friendly and PDF
This week's post is sent to me by my cousin Chaitra,who had actively sent her entries even in my earlier 'FFF season-1 series'.
Zucchini is a variety of cucumber called summer Squash which is widely used in salads, stir-fries, soups, stews, pancakes and also in baking.Zucchini has a very mild flavor and may not be liked by many,my hubby always fishes out the zucchini if I use it in a chunky form.This Zucchini patties makes a nice evening snack or a good party appetizer and is a easy way to feed those who hates zucchini.

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups grated Zucchini with skin
1 cup seasoned Bread crumbs
1 Egg,lightly beaten (see notes for egg less version)
2 tbsp finely chopped Onion
1 Tbsp Mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Herbs de provence or mixed herbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp coarsely ground Pepper
Salt to taste

to coat:
1/ 2 cup of crushed Crackers
or
1/2 cup Corn Flakes

Olive oil or regular Vegetable oil for shallow frying

Method:
  • Add salt to the grated zucchini and leave it over the colander for about 20 mins and squeeze out the excess water and put it in a wide bowl.
  • Add the bread crumbs, egg, chopped onion, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, grated Parmesan cheese and all the seasonings.
  • Just mix until everything is combined.
  • Slightly crush the cornflakes or crackers and spread them on a wide plate.
  • Make small but a little flat patties and coat them in crushed crackers or cornflakes.
  • Shallow fry them on medium-high flame for about 3 mins on each side until they are golden brown in color.
Serve them hot/warm with Mayonnaise, hot sauce or ketchup.You can also top these patties with Marinara sauce.

Notes:
  1. Instead of egg you can substitute it with 1tbsp cornstarch mixed with 2tbsp of water.
  2. I had wholegrain flakes at home so I used them instead of crackers or corn flakes.
  3. You can also try these with Mozzarella cheese,they also taste good.But I prefer Parmesan cheese over mozzarella cheese for these patties.
  4. You can use regular bread crumbs in case you don't get seasoned ones.
