Fried Zucchini Batter

Fried Zucchini Batter created by anniesnomsblog

Recipe from box of Argo Cornstarch in the early 80's. This batter is light and tasty. Posting recipe as request from one of my sons. This batter is great for zucchini, but can be used on any thing you would like to fry up! Many reviews complain of the lack of seasoning. I have taken the garlic powder up to 1 tsp. and it helps, a dash of hot sauce works well too. If you must, sprinkle lightly with additional salt immediately after removing from the frying oil. Another tip - I prefer the thinner batter for a lighter and crunchier coating on the veggies (the thicker batter just seems to be too doughy for our tastes).

    I tried making this and must have done something wrong. Instead of having a nice crunchy crust I got soft kind of doughy stuff. Too thick of batter? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'd really like this to work.

    This is a great recipe. We did change one thing after making it the first time. We separated the egg white and added the egg whites from two more eggs and beat them to stiff peaks and folded this into the batter. This in turn gave it a bit more crunch and made it stretch further and coat more zucchini. Also great on mushrooms as well.

    Nice easy recipe! My husband loves to make this for us!

    Followed recipe exactly and was just like the fried zucchini I grew up on. I sliced the whole zucchini longways with a mandolin instead of fries. I grew up squeezing a lemon wedge on top and dipping then in spaghetti sauce. It was just like I remembered. My husband loved it and wanted more the next day!
