A question about a recipe: Zucchini Pancakes
I have a question about step 1 on the recipe "Zucchini Pancakes" from dagny. It says:
"Grate your zucchini and potato using the largest hole on your grater. Let stand in a colander for at least 30 minutes to drain. They will hold together better when you drain out maximum moisture. Salt generously."
I'm wondering if I could salt the grated zucchini to draw out excess moisture, and let it stand for 10 minutes or so, then add the grated potato. Would this shortcut work? I'd still follow the step of squeezing the grated zucchini / potato together together in a towel.
