Healthy South Indian Cooking - Zucchini Kootu

Today, I've decided to cook a mushroom dish before the mushroom spoils, but too late, it was spoiled so that went into the trash. After looking at the vegetable remaining in the fridge, I decided to make Zucchini Kootu, mainly because that's the only thing left. I made this dish by following a recipe from this book that was recently purchased from Amazon, Healthy South Indian Cooking by Alamelu Vairavan and Patricia Marquardt.

I had almost everything required to make this dish but coconut powder (which was substituted with shredded coconut) and assafoetida powder.




Karthik said it's a little bit sweet and it's missing something but it's OK (3 stars out of 5)! He initially said he was full and will eat a little but after he finished the first serving, went back for second! YAY! Sadly we did not eat it with chips because we are on diets.

Until next dish...
