"Zucchini Blossom Fritters, crispy crunchy, summer delight! I grew up eating pumpkin blossom fritters. One of the main reason we planted zucchini is so I can enjoy zucchini blossoms the same way."

Prep time 5mins
Cook time 10mins
Serves or Makes: 10

Recipe

  • 10 zucchini blossoms
  • 1/ 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons rice flour, or fine semolina
  • 1 teaspoon nigella seeds
  • 1/ 4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • salt, to taste

Method

  • Step 1

    Remove the stigma on the zucchini blossoms and using the pastry brush gently brush off the excess pollen dust.

  • Step 2

    Prepare the batter by adding water little by little. You want the batter to be smooth and free flowing but not too watery.

  • Step 3

    Once the batter is ready, heat enough oil to pan fry the fritters on medium heat.

  • Step 4

    Coat the batter evenly on the blossoms and carefully slide it to the skillet. Don’t overcrowd the pan. Fry until golden brown and place it on a wire rack. (Placing the fritters on a wire rack instead of a kitchen towel helps release the hot steam so the fritters will stay crispy.)

  • Step 5

    Serve immediately.
