One of the best side dishes ever. Absolutely essential if you live in the south. :)

Also very simple - it takes only a few minutes and ingredients you should have on hand!

Awesome! I made this along with sweet potato fries and they turned out great! The batter recipe held up for two zuchinnis, a squash, and a sweet potato. I used bread crumbs instead of the cornmeal which gave the veggies more texture. Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful! I could not get my squash to perk up until I tried this recipe and now it's perfect. Great website.

best fried squash ever, thanks so much for sharing

very nice and mouth watering!
in my language these are called "bhaji"( in marathi)
instead of corn flour, we use chiken pea lentil flour and sponge gourd instead zucchini!
the flour paste should be slightly thick
this is a popular evening snacks in rainy season
buck up!!!!!!!

I cut my yellows, dip in egg wash, roll in bread crumbs, and place in non stick pan with small dollops of butter around pan and sprinkle pepper and parmasean over tops of squash - bake 365 for 20mins or until tender - flip over for addtl 5 mins - flip back over to serve...mmmm - good... we are going to try frying as written above this weekend :)

Thought you'd enjoy these pictures...two zuchinni plants in containers...so easy to grow, so good!
