Oil For Frying
1) Grate the Zucchini , boiled potato & Carrot.
2) Place zucchini in a colander and add 1 tsp Salt to it. Toss to combine and set aside for at least 30 minutes.
3)Squeeze the water out of zucchini. You can use your hands or use a cheesecloth.
4)Mix everything in a bowl. You can at this point do a taste test to see if you want more salt. Season accordingly.
5)Mix until well combined.
6)Make small (lime sized) balls.
7)Form into patties. Repeat for rest of them. At this point you can also refrigerate these in the fridge (for about 20-30 min) which will help to hold them up well while frying. It also helps to avoid oil retention. Its not strictly necessary to do this.
8) Add 1-2 tbsp of oil to your Cast iron pan (or as desired to coat the bottom of a non stick skillet. Note that regular non stick will require less amount of oil) . When hot, add the patties.
9)Cook them until golden-reddish brown on both the sides. Takes around 5-6 minutes each side.
Serve hot with ketchup / Chilli sauce/ vegan Yogurt or vegan sour cream.
