Batter

1.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, starches, seasoning, water, and egg until smooth.

2.

In another bowl, mix together the bread crumbs and cheese.

3.

Scrub zucchini and slice thinly to about a quarter-inch (one-half centimeter) thickness.

4.

Dip zucchini in batter, and then dredge in bread crumb mixture.

Notes:

Feel free to halve the recipe, as it makes a lot.  

Fry

1.

Heat a generous amount of oil in a large skillet.

2.

Place breaded slices in oil and fry for three minutes (depending on thickness, it might be less or more) on each side, until golden.

3.

Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

For the Dip

1.

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.

2.

Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Serve alongside the zucchini.

Notes:

Try adding smoked paprika for incredible flavor. Vary spices according to your family’s preference. You can even add some mustard.
