This snack is a cheese-lover’s dream come true! Unpeeled zucchini fingers are coated excitingly with cheese and breadcrumbs, and baked in an oven till it acquires a uniquely cheesy crispness!

It is basically the kind of snack that is both crisp and chewy, an amazing texture that everybody loves. To make these Cheesy Baked Zucchini Fries, we have suggested parmesan cheese powder, but you can also use freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Serve this as an appetizer or evening snack, with Chipotle Sauce .

Dish looks good. What else can we use as cover instead of breadcrumbs and maida. I don’t want to use both. Please suggest. 🙏 Thanks
