Zucchini Bhaji/Zucchini Pakoras/Zucchini Bajji - #MonsoonMojo

Zucchini, this zero calorie vegetable is one of my most favourite vegetable since ever i tried many dishes out of it. These vegetables are very cheaper than our Indian vegetables here, obviously i do try different dishes from our Indian cuisine. I have tried many dishes out of this zucchini, every dishes i have already tried with this vegetables never went wrong. From cake to pickle, you can dish out anything with this versatile vegetable. I always want to make some bhaji aka pakoras with this zero calorie vegetable and finally i made these beauties few days back for our evening snacks. Served with a spicy coconut chutney, trust me these bhaji tastes simply out of the world.Sending to Kalyani's Monsoon Mojo Event..

Zucchini Bajji, Courgette Fritters

Coming to these deep fried beauties, the flour mixture goes for the usual ingredients we usually stick for making the bajji batter. Sometimes i do add few spoons of idly batter instead of adding baking powder or baking soda to bring out the fluffy pakoras. Obviously this time i skipped the baking powder or baking soda part and went for leftover idly batter to make the bajji batter. Apart from it, this bajji are very simple and easy to make, you can serve them as side dish or else for our evening snacks. Make out this bajjis and serve your sudden guests if you get zucchini very easily, am sure they will be surprised to hear if you says that these bajjis are made with the famous zucchini. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Deepfried Love as theme, needless to say my next two posts for this week's theme are going to be crispy munchies.
