Lip-smackingly delicious Zucchini Pancakes. A perfect breakfast to start a lazy weekend!!!

Zucchini Pancakes

What do y’all do for the first meal when you have just gotten rid of a nasty stomach bug?? The easy answer is take it easy on your tummy which is exactly what I did.. Like a good kid I actually went back to eating my veggies i.e. Zucchini.. But I was damn well going to make sure that the zucchini wasn’t going to be bland in any way, shape or form. The end result; finger-lickingly delicious, fluffy pillows of goodness i.e Zucchini Pancakes.

There is an old saying which goes “When it rains, it pours”. If something like this happens and brings a lot of joy to life then you obviously feel good about it. But the saying is especially true for the tough times also. My week was going to be tough enough with the added pressure of work but the sickness just made it even worse. What’s more I had to take time off work which automatically meant more work piled up on my plate. But now all that is in the rear window.

I am all caught up on work and the stomach is finally healed and happy so it was time to do what I love the most and that is “EAT”. So the weekend called for a bit of a celebration so to speak. I was still going to eat the zucchini that I had but just in a different, more tastier way. The initial plan was to make a dosa which is a pancake but made from fermented batter. Now that was going to be a bit of a time consuming process. So I simply made my version of regular pancakes without bothering to go through the fermentation process. Fortunately for me there was absolutely no change in the deliciousness factor of the resulting Zucchini Pancakes (CHUCKLES!!). 

Mix zucchini, onion, cumin seeds, turmeric, garlic-jalapeno paste, baking powder and yogurt in a large bowl. Add in the AP flour and water to make a thick batter and season the batter with salt.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Scoop a ladle-full of batter into the hot skillet and fry until golden brown on both sides (should take about 2 minutes per side). Serve with a dollop of yogurt or any topping of choice.
