This is my favourite summer recipe, I look forward to making and eating these tasty fritters every summer. These deep fried zuccini flowers are so tasty and cruncy, ideally served as a starter to chic dinner, If you are looking for something cruncy and differen and elegant recipe, try them . Here is how to make zuccini flower fritters. I hope, you have a chance to try the recipe.
- 8-10 zucchini flower
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh red pepper and green pepper.
- 1 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese.
- 1 teaspoon chopped dill or mint
- Black pepper-red pepper flakes to taste.
- For Batter Ingredients:
- 1/4 cup plain flour,1/4 cup graham flour, 1 cup mineral water, salt and red flakes to taste. Place the flour and mineral water, salt-pepper in a bowl and mix them well. Set aside.
- Vegetable oil, for frying.
1- Prepare the zucchini flowers by inspecting each flower for dirt, or bugs (little critters do like to hide inside them). Remove the pistil from inside each flower. I also like to remove the little green spikes from around the stem of the flowers.
2- Put in the chopped fresh pepper in a bowl add the grated cheddar cheese, and salt, balack pepper-red pepper flakes to taste. Use a fork to gently beat the ingredients together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the plain flour, graham flour, the mineral water. Add salt, the pepper flakes to taste and stir to combine. The mixture should be slightly thicker than a pancake batter. If needed, add in a bit more mineral water. Stuff your blossom with the mixed cheese and set aside.
3-Pour enough vegetable oil into a medium skillet to coat the bottom by about a 1/4, heat over medium high heat. Coat your stuffed zucchine flowers with the battered and drop into the hot oil. Use the back of a spoon to flatten each fritter slightly. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip the fritter over, and brown the other side. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Serve while hot. Enjoy it!
