For the Zucchini Fritters:

  • 2 medium zucchini, grated
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

For the Tzatziki Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup grated cucumber, squeezed dry
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Fresh dill, chopped (optional)


  1. Grate the zucchini and place it in a clean kitchen towel. Squeeze out as much excess liquid as possible.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the grated zucchini, chickpea flour, chopped parsley, minced garlic, ground cumin, paprika, salt, black pepper, and beaten egg. Mix until well combined.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the zucchini mixture and form it into a patty. Place the patty in the hot skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy. Repeat with the remaining mixture, adding more oil as needed.
  4. To make the tzatziki dipping sauce, combine the Greek yogurt, grated cucumber, minced garlic, lemon juice, salt, and chopped dill (if using) in a mixing bowl. Mix until well combined.
  5. Serve the zucchini fritters hot with the tzatziki dipping sauce on the side. Enjoy!
