What to make for snack? Everyday the same question....and have to meet the following criterion-must be healthy and nutritious, easy to digest, must appeal to 'E's eyes, tasty,easy to pick up with his little fingers etc etc.Last evening remembered the 'ghosavalyachi bhaji/fritters' my mom made @ home in Pune. Vegetable resembling ghosavala....ummmm..ummm...tadah!....Zucchini! And luckily had a zucchini in the fridge,so tried this out.Came out really well....and appealed to my little 'E' who by the way gets his 'picky eater' genes from 'M'.I served it with Ketchup...coz....anything dippable in Ketchup...is 'yummy' (As E thinks)!

1/2 cup besan/gram flour
