Aehobahk Buchim 애호박 부침 Zucchini Fritters

Finally the last banchan before I go on to the main dish for the birthday dinner. Another very simple and delicious side dish that won't cost an arm and a leg. This is equally perfect as a quick snack when you are feeling peckish. Try experiment with other vegetables such as green tomato, pumpkin and sweet potato.

serves 4 as part of a Korean meal
you'll need;
1 large zucchini, cut into 0.5 cm rounds
2 red chillies, finely diced

for the batter;
2/3 cup of flour
1/3 cup of water
1 egg
salt and pepper to taste

for the dipping sauce;
3 tbs of Korean soy
1 tbs of rice vinegar
dash of sesame oil
a little grated ginger and garlic (optional)

Prepare the vegetables.

Prepare the batter.

Dip zucchini rounds into the batter.

Fry in a hot pan with cooking oil on medium heat.

Place some diced chillies in the middle of the zucchini rounds. Turn over to cook the other side.

Serve immediately with the dipping sauce.

  3. They look very pretty! I am not a big fan of zucchini but I would love to try this with pumpkin.

  4. I'd love it any time .
    great that it is shallow fried !!

  5. This looks like a lovely snack. Very beautiful with the green plate!

  6. I love this. Nice touch on the diced chilli.

  7. I thought it was fried cake or sth initially, then I notice it was fried zucchini instead. Lol. Enjoy your recipe. Have a nice day!

  8. Nice little side dish. I will be so happy with just the 3 banchan lol
    What else did you prepare? :)

  9. Yum! I sometimes cook the Korean fritter when needing something lighter than Japanese tempura. Great dish to share :)

  10. Battered zucchini fritters are great esp. when they are just out the wok. I love them with some garlic chilli sauce.

  11. this is interesting. something new for me :)as always m yumming away here.

  12. A platter with mixed vegetables sounds good. Love the sound of using green tomato. Looks good!

  13. 很有趣, 可要試一試。

  14. I suspect those chilis you place in the center of the rounds is quite hot. I really love zucchini fritters and yours look wonderful. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary
