What Ingredients are Needed for Making this?
Zucchini- Fresh zucchini is the star ingredient of this dish.
Chickpea Flour- For making my vegan version of zucchini fritters, chickpea flour is quite an important ingredient.
Onion/Green Onion- Any type of finely chopped onion will work in this recipe.
Minced Garlic- Who doesn't love garlic flavour? This brings out the best of this fritter recipe. Minced garlic makes this bland zucchini taste delicious.
Fresh Chilli Pepper-If you are not into spicy food, just skip this ingredient. However, since I love a little bite from hot chillies, I used them.
I used red hot Thai chilli pepper, sliced thinly in this recipe.
Salt, oil spray for an air fryer, cilantro, a few lemons or lime juice(optional sprinkling) will also be used before serving.

Grate zucchini with the help of a box grater. Mix some salt and leave zucchini for 15 minutes.
