Potato pancakes with zucchini

We know another name of this meal. For example, in Belarus it calls “draniki” what means “grated”.
It is very simple meal and easy to cook. Usually we serve them with sour cream or yogurt sauce. Also, you can use a spring roll sauce of sweet chili sauce. We prefer to eat both 😊.
