Gluten free zucchini patties

Gluten free Zucchini Patties

Gluten free Zucchini Patties are so tasty as a appetizer or as a dinner option for a filling stomach. In India, they call it as cutlet, that’s mainly binded with mashed potato and cornflour or maida. These Cutlets are served in all street side shops and bakeries with tomato ketchup.

I made these Zucchini Patties or Cutlet gluten free to make it perfect for low carb foodies. Zucchini is like cucumber but a bit harder inside. It oozes a lot of moisture when grated. When there is of water while making patties, then it won’t bind together. It may split while frying or baking.

Here is a perfect way to get most moisture out of it. Add a tsp or more of salt to the grated Zucchini and let it sit for 10 min at least to bring out all moisture in it. Then place grated zucchini in a muslin cloth and strain it by squeezing. Then add all other spices to it and mix through.
