Vegetable oil for frying


Place the sliced courgette on a tray and sprinkle salt on them (both sides) then set aside for 20/30minutes. This is done to remove some of the moisture from them

In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, corn starch flour and onion powder.

In another mixing bowl, mix the beaten egg and minced garlic.

Mix the bread crumbs with salt and pepper then pour onto a tray.

Heat your vegetable oil in a shallow pan

Dip the courgette slices in the flour mixture and coat evenly all round, then into the beaten egg mixture, letting excess egg drip off then finally roll into the bread crumb mixture.

Shallow fry the courgette slices, until golden brown.

Set on a paper towel, pat off excess oil, sprinkle some herbal salt on them then serve with tartar or garlic sauce.
