Cheesy Vegetable Fritters





Cheesy vegetable fritters are a delightful and savory snack that can be enjoyed at any time of the day.

They are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, and packed with a variety of vegetables and


cheese, making them a nutritious and tasty option. These fritters are perfect for a quick snack, a party

appetizer, or even as a side dish. In this article, we will guide you through a simple recipe to make

cheesy vegetable fritters at home.



For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:


For the Fritters:


1 cup grated zucchini

1 cup grated carrots

1 cup finely chopped bell peppers (red, green, yellow)

1/2 cup finely chopped onions


2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or a mix)

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup cornmeal

2 large eggs

1/2 cup milk


1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon paprika

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley or cilantro (optional)

For Frying:


Vegetable oil for frying


Step 1: Prepare the Vegetables

Start by grating the zucchini and carrots. Place the grated zucchini in a clean kitchen towel and


squeeze out as much moisture as possible. This step is crucial to ensure your fritters are crispy and

not soggy.

Finely chop the bell peppers and onions.

Step 2: Make the Batter


In a large mixing bowl, combine the grated zucchini, grated carrots, chopped bell peppers, and

chopped onions.

Add the shredded cheese to the vegetables and mix well.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, black pepper,

garlic powder, and paprika.

In another bowl, beat the eggs and then whisk in the milk.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the vegetable and cheese mixture, followed by the egg and milk

mixture. Stir until all the ingredients are well combined. If the batter seems too thick, you can add a

little more milk.

Step 3: Fry the Fritters


Heat about 1/4 inch of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Once the oil is hot, drop spoonfuls of the batter into the skillet, flattening them slightly with the back

of the spoon to form small patties.

Fry the fritters in batches, cooking for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown

and crispy.

Transfer the cooked fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.

Step 4: Serve

Serve the cheesy vegetable fritters warm, garnished with fresh parsley or cilantro if desired.

These fritters can be enjoyed on their own or with a dipping sauce of your choice, such as ranch, sour

cream, or a spicy mayo.

Tips for Perfect Fritters


Drain the Vegetables: Make sure to remove excess moisture from the zucchini and any other watery

vegetables to keep the fritters crispy.

Cheese Choice: You can use any type of cheese you like, but a mix of cheddar and mozzarella works

particularly well.

Cooking Temperature: Ensure the oil is hot enough before frying the fritters. If the oil is not hot

enough, the fritters will absorb too much oil and become greasy.



Cheesy vegetable fritters are a versatile and delicious snack that you can easily make at home. They

are perfect for satisfying your savory cravings and are a great way to incorporate more vegetables

into your diet. Try this recipe the next time you’re looking for a quick and tasty snack or appetizer.
