Time flies and it’s almost pumpkin season. Even though Fall hasn’t started officially but I have started to feel the chills in the air in the morning and at night.
Pumpkins are showing up everywhere at the grocery stores and the neighborhood pumpkin patch.

- 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 dashes ground black pepper
- Thai sweet chili sauce
- Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
- Mix the pumpkin, flour, egg, milk, cheese, baking powder, salt and pepper in a big bowl. Stir to combine well. The mixture should barely bind together and not wet or watery.
- Using a spoon, scoop up the pumpkin mixture and drop it gently into the hot oil. Fry in batches until both sides turn golden brown and the inside is cooked through. Remove from oil with a strainer and transfer the fritters on a plate lined with paper towels. Serve hot with Thai sweet chili sauce.
Use kabocha pumpkin or Japanese pumpkin if you can find it. Kabocha pumpkin is sweeter than regular pumpkin.
