Potato & Zucchini fritters is a healthy snack for kids lunch packs, starters for guests or anytime munchies.I like this recipe because there are only two major ingredients. There is a choice to bake, deep fry or shallow fry to cook them. My personal choice is to shallow fry them.

Lets have a look at the ingredients and recipe



  • 1 – 1 1/2  zucchini (about 2 medium zucchini)
  • 1 large boiled potato
  • 1 small onion grated
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup oil, for shallow frying
  • 1 finely chopped green chili (optional)

Recipe for Zucchini & Potato fritters


  • Shallow fried fritters

Grate the zucchini on the large holes of a box grater.

In a large bowl, mash the boiled potato and add grated onion.

Combine and mix the vegetables (Zucchini, Potato, onion & green chili) with flour, now add salt, ground black pepper & cumin seeds.

Keep the batter aside for 5 minutes for zucchini to release water, add little water to mix to combine if required.

Heat 1 – 2 Tablespoons of oil in a nonstick pan over medium heat.

Spoon the batter into the oil, using the back of the spoon to flatten them out, creating fritters.

Cook for about 3 minutes per side, until golden brown.

Drain the fritters on a tissue paper for it to soak additional oil

Your crispy fritters are ready to be served.

You can also prepare the fritters in advance and refrigerate them. To serve them preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Place the cooked fritters on a rack on top of a baking sheet to stay warm until you are ready to serve them.

However, don’t keep them in the oven for more than 20-30 minutes, or they will be too dry. Alternatively you can half cook these fritters in the pan for 3-4 minutes and re fry them if you like them to be served really hot.


Sour cream goes wonderfully with the fritters or they could be served with ketchup. You can also add fresh herbs such as green onions, coriander etc. to the batter if you like.
