I’ve got a twofer for you guys today! A fried potato balls recipe and fried zucchini. First of all, let me say this, I’ve had a crazy busy month. I haven’t blogged in 3 weeks because of so many interruptions in my life. Life just happens and the first thing to take a backseat is my blog, unfortunately. Anywho, glad to get that out of the way and on these recipes.
Background on these recipes, last month you might have seen I wrote a review on Callaloo Box, be sure to check that out and also you’ll find a discount code for your own subscription box at the end of this post. The October box came with several sauces, mango chutney, and a batter for pholourie. Now for my Caribbean friends reading this, I am not a pholourie fan 🙂 so I wanted to utilize the batter in a different way and still be able to give the kids something enjoyable for lunch.
Fried Potato Balls Recipe
Basically, wash and slice the zucchini to the desired size and dip into the pholourie batter. Add to heated oil and voila! I also added some scallions to my batter for the zucchini.
Keep in mind you can use any batter for these recipes, make your own if you like. My mom tends to do that but I’m not a skillful cook as she is from the old country. She tends to make everything from scratch but sometimes the ingredients are hard to find in Minnesota. Another reason I personally love the idea of what the girls at Callaloo Box are doing. They make it so easy and convenient for us to get certain staple items like marinades, sauces, spices and more that we can’t find in a West Indian/Caribbean store.
