How to make zucchini pancakes?

To make zucchini pancakes, you only need 3 ingredients: zucchini, eggs, flour. Then you can add spices and herbs to enhance the taste. In this recipe, I added cumin, coriander powder, parsley and spring onions.

The first and only step that takes a little time is to grate the zucchini. I used a julienne slicer for this. See the pictures of my julienne slicer in my recipe for Zucchini Pancake with Mozzarella.

Then, remove the excess water from the zucchini. This then allows the pancakes to stick up well. To do this, I place the shredded zucchini in a clean dish towel and squeeze them tightly into the towel until no more liquid comes out.

Then you just need to mix the zucchini, flour, eggs, spices and herbs. I then cooked my pancakes in a pan for about 10 minutes on each side.

Are you missing an ingredient? Here are some tips on how to substitute certain ingredients.

Preparation

Start by washing the zucchini, cutting off the ends and grating them. Once the zucchini is grated, place it in a clean cloth and skeeze it out well to remove excess water.

Chop the parsley and finely chop the spring onions.

Then add the eggs, flour, cumin, coriander powder, parsley and spring onions. Mix everything well.

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a pan. Spoon a generous tablespoon of the zucchini mixture into 2, 3 or 4 pancakes depending on the size of your pan. Cover with a lid and cook the zucchini pancakes for 10 minutes on each side over medium heat.

Repeat until no more pancake batter is left.

My tip: Preheat your oven to 120°C and place the already baked pancakes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. This way they will stay warm and crisp up even more!

Meanwhile, prepare the yogurt dip. Chop the fresh herbs (parsley, mint and dill) finely. In a small bowl, pour the yogurt, fresh herbs, olive oil and lime juice. Add salt and pepper. Mix well.

Serve the zucchini pancakes with the yogurt dip and a squeeze of lime.
