Warm weather means more fresh choices at my favourite fresh food farmers markets and more summer vegetables like zucchini. Fresh zucchini of course equals to Zucchini Fritters… vegan Zucchini Fritters! The weekly theme for Vegan MoFo for week 2 this year is a kitchen gadget I can’t live without. I went through my appliance cupboard and stopped at my stand mixer, (very useful with making my own dough and batter); Blender (great for nut butters, smoothies, frozen desserts, soups and dips ), until I saw my Air Fryer! My Philips Airfryer is quite old (bought it in 2012) and has helped make several of my favourite foods relatively fat-free doing away with the messy deep-frying process. I have possibly deep-fried food a couple of times after my Air Fryer’s been an active part of my kitchen.
This 5 ingredient recipe is gluten-free, low-fat and made in the Air Fryer. Ready in under half an hour, these fritters taste great by themselves or combined with a salad for a filling meal.
Vegan Zucchini Fritters – 5 Ingredients
Vegan; Gluten-free; Low fat; Air Fryer recipe.
- 2 Zucchini, medium.
- 3/4 cup Besan (Chickpea Flour)
- 3/4 cup Rice Flour (finely ground)
- 1/2 teaspoon Turmeric
- Black Salt (Kala Namak), to taste
Sift the “Besan” & rice flour together in a deep mixing bowl. Toss in turmeric powder and salt to taste and whisk through.
Grate the zucchini and squeeze out any excess water.
Fold the grated zucchini mixture into the dry flour mix.
Form round patties using wet palms and place in the Air Fryer basket.
Cook for 20 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius and allow to cool slightly before removing from the Air Fryer basket as the patties are quite delicate when hot.
I get my Black/ rock salt (Kala Namak), rice flour and Besan flour at my local Indian grocery store.
