  • 1 zucchini sliced into equal thickness
  • panko crumbs


  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup and 3 tbsp water
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 3/4 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise/vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sweet relish
  • 1 tbsp sugar


  • Slice the zucchini into equal thickness.
  • Make the batter by combining all batter ingredients until there are no clumps (see notes).
  • Add zucchinis in the batter and coat it, tapping off the excess.
  • Next, coat it with panko crumbs.
  • Heat up oil over medium heat in a frying pan and shallow fry the zucchinis for 1-3 minutes on each side or until the zucchinis are golden brown (see notes).
  • Make the sauce by mixing all the ingredients.
  • Serve while hot with this sauce or sauce of your choice and enjoy!


*The consistency of the batter should be in between a pasty and watery consistency. Adjust with more flour or more water to reach that consistency, 1/2 tbsp at a time.
*You can deep fry or for a healthier version, air fry at 350 F for 10-15 minutes and flipping it halfway.
*This recipe is vegan friendly, swap the mayonnaise for the sauce with vegan mayonnaise or serve with your sauce of choice.
