METHOD

  1. Grate zucchini and sprinkle salt over it. Mix and let zucchini rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Transfer grated zucchini to a sieve and press grated zucchini firmly with the back of a ladle to squeeze excess water. Do not discard water. You can use it to knead dough.
  3. Transfer zucchini, potato, garlic cloves, parsley, chilli flakes, breadcrumbs, 1 tbsp cornflour powder and salt to a big bowl.
  4. Mix all ingredients and chill the mixture in refrigerator for 10 minutes. Zucchini contains lot of water. So, once mixture is chilled down for sometime, it becomes easier to handle.
  5. Divide mixture into 12 portions. Take one portion, flatten it, put cheese in the center and seal the portion properly by forming a ball.
  6. Repeat with other portions.
  7. Make cornflour slurry with remaining cornflour powder and water.
  8. Dip each ball into cornflour slurry and coat balls with semolina.
  9. Refrigerate balls for 15-20 minutes.
  10. Deep-fry balls in hot oil and lip-smacking cheesy zucchini bites are ready to be devoured.
