Potato pancakes or deruny are a tasty and satisfying potato dish that is seemingly easy to prepare: just grate the potatoes, add flour, spices and fry. However, very often, pancakes turn out to be tasteless, gray and stiff.

Zucchini for the dish

Cook Lesia Veremchuk shared a recipe for delicious, golden potato pancakes with whole wheat flour and zucchini on Instagram.


Tip: to avoid spoiling the pancakes, do not use a lot of flour or onions. For a beautiful color, you can add turmeric.
