A few years back when my parents-in-law visited us, I took them to the local farmer's market. Looking at Zucchini my father-in-law asked me if I knew the vegetable. At that time I was not aware of Zucchini, so I told him I didn't know that vegetable. He then tells me that it looks familiar to a vegetable called 'nethi beerakaya', which he used to eat as a child. I was amazed to discover the correlation and since then I have been using zucchini as often as possible. In my initial experiments with baking, I found this recipe in some local magazine here where they used eggs to dip the zucchini in. Later on I came to know that the egg wash can be substituted with flour+ milk mixture and so I did ! Trust me my kids love to eat zucchini like this..I am ever so glad to make this as often as they want to eat!! Who wouldn't be??

Ingredients - 

Zucchini 1 medium
Maida (All Purpose Flour) 3/4 cup
Milk 1 cup
Bread crumbs 1 cup (or as needed)

Method Of Preparation  - 

Make a paste of Maida and Milk and add more milk if necessary to get a bajji batter consistency.

Cut the Zucchini vertically to make thick pieces, dip them in the Maida-Milk batter and roll on bread crumbs or sprinkle bread crumbs on them.

Arrange the Zucchini pieces on a greased baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 400F for 25 min on one side.

Flip them onto the other side and bake for another 10-15 min until they brown a little.

Serve them with ketchup and the kids will love it!!

Notes - I used Italian flavored bread crumbs, so I didn't need to add any more salt or seasoning. 
Serves 2 Adults
Preparation time 40 min
