Full Recipe:


  • Zucchini: Fresh, grated
  • Vegetable Oil: For frying

Smoky Garlic Sauce Ingredients:


  • Sour Cream: 2 tablespoons
  • Mayonnaise: 2 tablespoons
  • Smoked Paprika Powder: 2 teaspoons
  • Dried Garlic: 2 teaspoons


Preparing the Zucchini Fritters:

  1. Wash the zucchini thoroughly. Grate them into a bowl, using a coarse grater for the best texture.
  2. Squeeze out as much water as possible from the grated zucchini. This step is crucial for achieving crispy fritters.
  3. Shape the zucchini into small patties. If the mixture is too wet, add a little flour to help bind it together.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, carefully place the zucchini patties in the oil. Fry until golden brown and crispy on both sides. Remove and place on paper towels to drain any excess oil.

Making the Smoky Garlic Sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, smoked paprika powder, and dried garlic until well combined and smooth.
  2. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Add extra paprika or garlic for more tang or smoke if desired.


Serve the crispy zucchini fritters hot, accompanied by the smoky garlic sauce on the side for dipping.
