"A very easy recipe for fried zucchini balls for an appetizer."
Watch video tips and tricks
celery root (celeriac), peeled and grated
anise seed, crushed
ground black pepper
all-purpose flour, or as needed
oil for frying
I used wheat flour instead of white and it still worked well. Hubby really enjoyed them. If you like middle eastern food this is similiar to baghis(sp) in Indian cooking. YUM!
I used celery instead of celeriac, and sorghum flour instead of ap flour. I probably would have enjoyed these more if I had let the vegetables soak with the salt to release the natural liquid for about 30 minutes before adding the flour. I dry fried these like they were pancakes. Somehow, I was hoping there would be more flavor! I think next time, I will add other seasonings in addition to those listed.
