Cut the zucchini horizontally into 4(cylindrical shape). Then slice each of them vertically into two halves. Then slice them again vertically so that they look like fries.
In a mixing bowl combine chickpea flour,oregano, cayenne pepper powder, salt and dairy free milk. Whip it up and make a thick batter. Keep panko crumbs ready in a separate bowl/plate.
Now, toss zucchini pieces into chickpea batter and mix gently with a spoon.
Then, take each zucchini slice that's well covered with the batter and roll them in panko crumbs generously. ( roll one zucchini slice at a time to get the neat pieces as the end result).
Place them in the air fryer basket. Grease them with cooking spray and attach the air fryer basket with air fryer and turn it on at 350-degree Fahrenheit and air fry them for 10 minutes. If it is crispy enough for you then take them out or else air fry them for another 5 minutes. (Do not exceed 15 minutes or else they will burn).
Serve immediately with your choice of dip.
