I did not want to miss this month’s edition of AWED hosted @ Tasty curry leaf.The theme this month is the exquisite Greek cuisine!!

I made this Kolokythakia Tiganita- A very tasty and easy recipe which turned out to be very crunchy and yumm.

I used:


Zucchini – 1 ,thinly sliced
All purpose flour – 1 cup
Bottled soda
Salt to taste
Oil to deep fry

  1. Prepare batter in a large bowl.Put in flour,salt and soda & prepare a batter of coating consistency.Beat well and keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a pan.
  3. Dip the Zucchini slices in the batter and drop them in oil.
  4. Deep fry till golden brown.
  5. Remove from oil into a plate lined with absorbent paper.
  6. Serve with a dip of your choice.

Note :

The key to crispness is in slicing the zucchini very thinly.

Happy munching…

  1. That reminds me of a recipe I read in Marcella Hazan book of Classic Italian Cuisine; I guess since they are neighbors there are similarities in the cuisines of both countries; i have always wanted to try it and now you have and it looks so delicious!
