  • 2 medium zucchini cut into ¼ inch slices
  • ½ cup gram flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon Kashmiri red chili powder or ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • ¾ teaspoon carom seeds lightly crushed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon water
  • ¾ cup gluten free panko **

Optional Garnish

  • 1 tablespoon cilantro chopped
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes

Optional Yogurt Dip for Serving


  • In a medium bowl add gram flour, salt, turmeric, red chili powder, carom seeds and garlic. Add a little bit of water at a time to make a smooth batter. The batter should be similar to pancake batter, not too thick or watery.
  • Add the panko to another bowl.
  • Take a slice of zucchini and dip in the batter, coating both sides lightly with a thin layer of batter.
  • Then place the zucchini in the panko crumbs and coat lightly on both sides.
  • Tip: To make this easy, you want to keep a wet hand for batter and a dry hand for the panko. This way your hands will not get too messy.
  • the coated zucchini chips
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees
  • Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Line the coated zucchini chips in a single layer. My air fryer fits about 16 to 18 slices.

If you are not gluten-free you can use regular panko or breadcrumbs
