Do you have a bumper crop of zucchini? These crispy latkes are the perfect way to use it up, and the tasty sauce adds a zing to the dish.
For the sauce:
In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, mango chutney, lime juice, mayonnaise, and curry powder. Whisk well, cover, and chill for 1-2 hours.
For the latkes:
Grate the zucchini onto a paper towel and season with about 1 tsp of kosher salt. Wrap the zucchini up in the paper towel and squeeze out the excess liquid. Place the squeezed zucchini into a large bowl and add the egg, scallions, flour, and pepper. Stir well.
Heat 3 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Using about 2 tbsp of the zucchini mixture, form a patty and place it in the skillet. Repeat until there are about six latkes in the pan. There will be enough of the zucchini mixture to make two batches of the latkes. Cook the latkes, turning halfway through cooking, until they are golden brown on both sides, about 4-5 minutes per side. Transfer the cooked latkes to a paper towel to drain off the excess oil.
Serve with the yogurt-curry sauce as an appetizer or side dish.
While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Cassava, also known as yuca, was one of my discoveries when visiting the Mexican vendors at my local flea market. Although the root vegetable is not indigenous to Mexico I seasoned this dish with some popular Mexican seasonings, then roasted it and enjoyed it (along with a couple of cold Dos Equis)!
Grilled fresh corn on the cob.
The big debate? Cook with husks on or husks off? I say husks off! Cook on the grill, this way the sweet corn kernels get a smoky-grilled flavor. There’s no need to blanch it first. Use a stove top grill or outside grill–just peel, remove silk and place right on the grill. Simple as that! Then top it with a homemade chili lime mayo and fresh cilantro.
