Savory Zucchini Pancake - Tikki

I got few fresh zucchini few days ago. So, I started searching for recipes, I came across so many recipes basically many of them are to bake muffin or cake using zucchini. I like the concept of using zucchini in baking. But I wanted to make quick without baking. 

So, I decided this recipe, is from Barefoot Contessa show, I replaced All purpose flour with whole wheat flour and it turned out delicious healthier version. 
You love zucchini or hate it, make it using this method, you gonna love your veggie. Trust me :)
