Zucchini Parmesan Masala Crisps

  • Servings: 15
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients-

  • ¾ cup grated zucchini
  • ¾ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon paav bhaji masala . I used Everest paav bhaji masala.

To make the Zucchini Parmesan Masala Crisps-

  1. Simply combine all the ingredients.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan on low heat.
  3. Sprinkle about a tablespoon of the mixture in small circles, making a few discs at a time, depending on the size of your griddle.
  4. Let them cook on low for about 3~4 minutes or until they are golden. Carefully flip them and let them cook and crisp on the other side for another 3~4 minutes.
  5. The crisps will become crispier as they cool!
  6. Enjoy them warm.

Notes-

  • Parmesan cheese is salty so I did not feel the need to add salt to the mixture.
  • I grated the zucchini just as I was ready to make the crisps. If you grate it in advance and it is watery, blot the excess moisture with a paper towel so the crisps will not be soggy.

Enjoy the crisps this weekend!

Love,

Sandhya

  12. I make cheese crisps a lot but not with zucchini. Great idea for adults too 🙂 The masala ingredient I don’t have – any suggestion for a substitute? I will have to look around as I am sure that makes these crisps so tasty!

    1. Sandhya says:

      Judi,the Paav Bhaji masala can be substituted with a mild garam masala which has chili powder in it or mild garam masala+ paprika/red chili powder.
      If you don’t have garam masala, I would add toasted coriander seed and cumin seed powder and some paprika/hot chili powder.
      Hope that helps.

      1. Thanks Sandhya – I am familiar with garam masala and actually made a bangala garam masala in an Indian shrimp recipe. The ingredients were cloves, cardamom seeds and cinnamon sticks. I will go with your suggestions…
