No Fry Zucchini Tots

No Fry Zucchini Tots - a way healthier alternative to tater tots, and much tastier too .I have being using the appe pan for quit some time now. Its amazing how i can make most of the fried stuff in this magic pan with few drops of oil. Loved the end result !! I think this is my new favorite way to eat Zucchini. If this doesn’t get the kids to eat their veggies, I don’t know what will.

Hello Sravanthi, I guess the reason could be the water in the zucchini, add some more rice flour . while making them next time try to squeeze out as much water as you can its mentioned in the notes. Hope it helps . Thanks
