Zucchini Hashbrown With Corns/ Zucchini-Corn Pancakes


Whenever zucchini is available in our local vegetable market I definitely buy these as I am a big fan of this versatile veggie. These tender squash have delicate flavours and the dishes prepared with them whether sweet or savoury,  are the healthiest ones. I use this healthy veggie to cook several dishes. This time I  have made zucchini hash browns or savoury pancakes adding lots of corn. Semolina and rice flour are added to bind them, making them crispier.


Corn kernels add a little sweet note to these pan-fried savoury fritters which feel good when eaten. Aged cheddar gives depth to the flavour, making them creamier. These golden brown crispies go very well with the garlic-mint dip. I really love  to have this combo in my breakfast

•  Fine semolina/sooji – 3 tbsp
•  Rice flour – 1 tbsp
•  Grated cheddar cheese – 2 tbsp (see notes)
•  Chopped coriander – 2 tbsp
•  Salt – 1 tsp
•  Olive or any light cooking oil – 2 tsp for each hash brown
•  Crushed black pepper – 1 tsp
•  Finely chopped red and green chilly – 1 tsp each

Step By Step

1-  Grate zucchini with the skin on and squeeze it with the help of muslin cloth to drain extra water

2-  Take a bowl and add everything together except oil to make a thick batter

3-  Keep this batter at rest for 10 minutes so that all the ingredients are incorporated well

4-  Keep a non-stick pan on slow flame and add 1 tsp oil.  Spread 1 tbsp batter on it and let it cook until it gets the golden brown colour

5-  Flip the pancake and cook the other side also until it becomes golden brown. Press the pancake all around with a spatula

6-  Make all pancakes like this. Serve the zucchini hash browns with garlic-mint dip


°  Any other cheese like mozzarella or processed cheese of your choice or availability can be used in the batter

°  One egg can be added to the batter if you like. This will help to bind the batter
