For marinating zucchini

  • Take 1 green zucchini. wash and pat dry with a cloth
  • Remove the edges of the zucchini and cut it into rounds. The slices should not be too thin or thick as the thin slices will not hold the texture after getting cooked whereas thick slices will not be cooked properly. Drizzle 1/2 tbsp lemon juice and 1/2 tsp salt on the zucchini roundels.

For coating zucchini

  • Take 2.5 tbsp gram flour (besan) and 2.5 tbsp rice flour in a bowl.

For making zucchini fry snack

  • Let the other side be crispy as well.

  • Marinating zucchini with salt and lemon juice helps the spiced flour to stick to the zucchini well apart from giving the taste so do not skip this step.
  • I recommended you to shallow fry the zucchini in this recipe as the zucchini does not require too much oil to cook and deep-frying may result in the spoiling of oil due to flour we have used in coating the zucchini, 
  • You can replace mustard oil with olive oil or any other vegetable oil.
