These fritters are made from whole slices of zucchini. They are a little tedious to make but well worth the effort.

 

1-cup all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons sugar

Salt to taste

 

1 egg, lightly beaten

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Water enough to make a thick batter –(like pancake batter)

 

2 or 3 medium size zucchini, each about 1 ½ to 2 inches in diameter

 

Oil for frying

 

Grated Parmesan

 

Mix first 4 ingredients together in a bowl. Add the egg and oil and enough water to make into a thick batter. Set aside.

 

Slice the Zucchini into ¼ inch thick slices. Heat about 2 inches of olive oil in a heavy skillet to deep frying temperature: between 350 and 375 degrees.

 

When oil has reached the proper temperature, a few at a time, dust the Zucchini slices in flour and dip into the batter, shake off excess and place in the hot oil until golden brown. Turn once. Remove from the oil and place on paper towels or piece of brown paper bag.

While still warm, sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Continue until all are done. Serve warm.
