Fried zucchini flowers with curry and lime yogurt

Fried zucchini flowers with curry and lime yogurt, fresh and aromatic.

It is zucchini flower season so instead of making the traditional stuffed zucchini blossom fritters from Italy why don’t we add some Asian spices?

Instead of making a plain batter, why don’t we add curry, fresh ginger, garlic…? If you make some lime yogurt as well, the result is just delicious.
