Prepare all the necessary ingredients for zucchini pancakes in a frying pan according to the most delicious recipe. Thoroughly wash the zucchinis under running water and dry them. It is recommended to choose the youngest, smallest, and most beautiful zucchinis, as they are the most delicious. I never remove the peel from such zucchinis. But if you have larger ones, it is better to remove the skin and definitely remove the flesh with the seeds. I always add a little onion to the pancakes. There are recipes without it, but in my opinion, adding onion will only enhance the flavor of the pancakes. Choose sour cream for the sauce of any fat content according to your taste, you can even substitute it with Greek yogurt, it will also be very tasty. Thoroughly wash the fresh cucumber with water to remove any spines and dry it.

Grease a non-stick pan with a small amount of vegetable oil (about 1 tsp), do this before frying each new portion of pancakes. I do not recommend adding a lot of oil at once, otherwise the pancakes will absorb it all and become too oily. Spoon the zucchini mixture onto a well-heated pan. One spoonful is enough for one pancake. Carefully shape the pancakes with the spoon, they should not be too thick, about 5-7 mm. Fry the pancakes on medium heat on one side until golden brown, about 3 minutes. I usually cover them with a lid.
