Zucchini Bites
They are an ideal finger food for a party.These are healthy snacks as baked with healthier ingredients.I have baked them in muffin moulds, but can be baked in baking pans using parchment paper.I have grated zucchini for that.Though they have lots of moisture, yet the extra water can be squeezed out and can be bound well-adding semolina, corn flour or breadcrumbs. I have added fine semolina/sooji/rava to bind them.
