It’s better to use an air fryer grill pan. It allows you to cook 4 at once, you don’t have any problems with the zucchini fritters sticking to the air fryer basket and it is easier to clean up afterwards.
I use a clean tea towel to remove the excess liquid from the zucchini. Squeeze it tight and drain the water over the sink. Or find a man with good muscles and do it with your hands!
If you use a flour other than plain basic flour, they will come out like scones. We once accidentally used self-raising flour and they tasted like cheese scones!
