Grated zucchini fritters are a simple and delicious Italian appetizer, also suitable as tapas or for a fingerfood buffet. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, these grated zucchini fritters are prepared in just a few steps and are generally always very successful, even among kids. If you have children who are not inclined to eat vegetables, these crunchy zucchini fritters will perhaps win them over too!
To cook zucchini fritters with this recipe you will need to prepare a soft batter with eggs, flour and very sparkling water. Once the grated zucchini have been added, the fritters will simply be poured from a spoon into the very hot oil and, during cooking, they will take on different shapes each time, some even very curious. I leave you the recipe for my grated zucchini fritters, but keep in mind that the doses of water and flour are approximate, since depending on the type of flour used and the size of the egg, it may be necessary more or less waterfall. Before frying all the fritters, do a test with a single spoonful of dough: if it flakes in contact with hot oil, the batter is too liquid and you can fix it by adding a small amount of flour.

How to prepare crispy zucchini fritters

Once all the zucchini have been squeezed, prepare the batter: shell the egg in a bowl and add a good pinch of salt and a grind of pepper.
Choose a very sparkling water (so the fritters will be crispy and puffy) and keep it closed in the refrigerator until it is time to use it. Mix well to mix it with the other ingredients, until you get a smooth and quite liquid batter.
How to store
Zucchini fritters should be eaten as soon as they are made, so as not to lose their fragrance. If they are left over, they can be kept at room temperature for a few hours. If you need to prepare them in advance, the advice is to keep the batter and grated zucchini in the refrigerator in two separate bowls until just before frying them.
Tips and variations
I made the grated zucchini fritters using rice flour, out of necessity for gluten-free cooking. The same recipe can obviously be made with AP flour, but if you feel like it, I invite you to try the rice flour batter once because the result is truly excellent. If you are not intolerant to gluten instead of sparkling water you can use beer.
