Don't you think to tap the goodness of Zucchini and to make the dish a lil more healthy, baking zucchini blossoms would have been a better option? I have tried baking Zucchini and it tastes awesome! :)

Thanks for some really mouthwatering fried Zucchini Blossoms. They look so crunchy ! But I agree with Anonymous on the health factor. Maybe baked might not taste as good as these, but are definitely a healthier option . :) But again, these are gr8 for freaking out occasionally! Could you please suggested some good accompaniments for this ? Also what course are these fried Zucchini Blossoms best suited for ?

I made this but without the egg in the batter or any stuffing... they taste great!! even pumpkin blossoms are sooooo great when fried with a simple and seasoned batter... with 'rice and daal'... I dunno if anyone has tried it or not...if u haven't yet, then try it! :)
