  1. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add tomatoes. Cook, tossing occasionally, for 3-4 minutes until soft. Transfer to a plate. Cover to keep warm.
  2. Combine zucchini and potato in a bowl. Squeeze handfuls over a sink to remove excess moisture. Return to bowl. Add flour and egg. Season with salt and pepper. Mix until well combined. Combine ricotta, basil and rind in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in pan over medium heat. Spoon four ¼-cupfuls of mixture into pan. Flatten slightly to make 8cm diameter patties. Cook for 2 minutes each side or until golden. Repeat twice with remaining oil and mixture to make 12 patties in total.
  4. Top rosti with ricotta and tomatoes. Sprinkle with basil and lemon rind.
