How to make Vegan Zucchini Corn Pancake?
Making vegan zucchini corn pancakes is relatively easy, and contrary to popular belief, you do not need eggs or any nonvegan binding agent. Growing up in a vegetarian Indian household where egg was not consumed, I learned that naturally.
Primarily we use gram flour /chickpea flour /Garbanzo beans flour, or all-purpose flour as a binding agent for all our koftas, fritters, tikkas, kebabs, and whatnot. Using gram flour is preferable because they have high protein content and gluten-free properties.

How to prepare Zucchini and Potato for Pancakes?
Grated zucchini and potato are used in this recipe. After grating them place them into a tea towel. Grab from all four corners to form a tight pouch. Squeeze them nicely so that the excess water drains. Fresher the zucchini is more water will come out of it.
How to Serve?
I serve them with any of these, like, vegan aioli, tzatziki dip, chili garlic dip, and cilantro chutney. Any homemade dip or chutney will work. They are great for lunch boxes as well. I use them as pita pocket filling and Serve them with salad greens. They are filling and quite delicious.
Can we freeze them?
Yes. I have stored them in a freezer-safe container in the fridge for about two weeks. First, cook them thoroughly and then let them come to room temp. After that, store them in freezer-safe containers or even ziplock bags. Do not store them once you thaw them. Before serving, warm them in the oven, air fryer, or pan.
