Shallow Fried Zucchini

shallow fried Zucchini
Few years back, we came to US.  It took a little time to know the local varieties of vegetables and fruits.  I learned that Cantaloupe is nothing but a variety of Muskmelon and Butternut Squash tastes quite similar to Pumpkin.  I keep trying to cook local seasonal vegetables in a desi style.. making paratha, curry and today's Konkani style shallow fried Zucchini.

Zucchini Squash - 2
Semolina/Rava/Sooji - 1/2 cup
Black Pepper Powder - 1/4 tsp
Cayenne Pepper/Red Chilli Powder - 1/4 tsp
Chat Masala - 1/2 tsp
How to shallow fry Zucchini Squash:
Dice zucchini into slightly thick slices.  Sprinkle black pepper powder, cayenne pepper, chat masala and little salt.  Mix well.

Coat the zucchini slices in semolina and shallow fry in a pan drizzling little oil.  Check with a spatula if zucchini is cooked.  Roast until the semolina crust turns crisp.  You can add the seasonings to semolina as well.  Serve Zucchini fritters as an appetizer or as a side dish with meals.
