In a way, you can trick yourself into thinking you’re eating healthy by popping more of these delicious, crisp veggie fritters in your mouth – after all, it’s made of lots of veggies. We won’t tell. These fritters are great to fry up if you’re looking to make a quick snack for potlucks. The secret to a veggie fritter that holds together, doesn’t break apart and has that mouthwatering crunch is a formula of Veggies + Spices + Cheese + Binding Agent (like flour and eggs). So, this recipe obviously has all of it.
Using a food processor to chop down your large-size vegetables into fritter-friendly pieces will also help. Don’t go too hard on the processor though, we don’t want crumbs for the fritters.
Another thing – while baking the fritters may seem like a more wholesome choice, frying is the better option. Frying ensures you’ll get that extra-crispy exterior, which is the sign of a great fritter. Plus, these are shallow-fried, rather than deep-fried, in just a couple of tablespoons of oil, so don’t feel too guilty.
