Full Recipe:

  1. Ingredients:
  • 2 medium zucchinis, sliced into rounds
  • 150g cheese, grated (mozzarella or cheddar recommended)
  • 300g all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Oil, for frying (vegetable or canola recommended)


  1. Prepare the Batter: In a large mixing bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Mix in the grated cheese and season with salt and pepper. Gradually incorporate the flour, stirring until the batter is smooth. Adjust consistency with a little water or milk if too thick.
  2. Prepare the Zucchini: Wash and slice the zucchinis into 1/4 inch thick rounds. Dry thoroughly with paper towels.
  3. Heat the Oil: Pour enough oil in a frying pan to cover the bottom and heat over medium.
  4. Cook the Zucchini: Dip each zucchini round in the batter to coat both sides. Fry in the hot oil for 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown and crispy. Fry in batches to avoid overcrowding.
  5. Drain and Serve: Transfer fried zucchini rounds to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve warm, ideally with dips like marinara or ranch dressing.
