Kolokythakia are made by dipping very thin slices of zucchini in batter and then frying them in very hot oil. The batter helps keep the zucchini very soft and tender on the inside, while crispy crust forms on the outside. And this is how they’re served in almost every Greek restaurant. Along with some grated Kefalotyri cheese on top. But that’s optional really.

How To Fry Zucchini

There are a few tips and tricks to achieve making extra crispy zucchini. Other than the batter itself which helps, you need to pay attention to the temperature of the oil. It needs to be hot enough, so the batter forms a crust around the zucchini right as it gets dipped into the oil. The ideal frying temperature is 140-145°C (284-293 °F). An instant-read thermometer is a real savior in this case, but if you don’t own one, then toss a little drop of the batter in the oil to test if it’s hot enough. It should rise on the surface right away and start frying.

When it comes to frying, a gas stove always yields the best results. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make crispy zucchini on an electric stovetop. You will just have to pay extra attention to keeping a stable cooking temperature (as it tends to drop on an electric stove) so you may need to turn it a bit higher if you see that the zucchinis start to look like they simmer instead of frying.

Start with 2-3 slices to see how it works out on your stove. While keeping in mind, that they need to cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side until they get a deep golden color.
