This recipe is another old favorite that I needed to revamp the photos. It is one of my favorite recipe that is very simple to prepare. I love it served over rice, brown rice tortilla or gluten-free homemade roti.
I had this lonely zucchini in my refrigerator and I needed to use it before it went bad. I was also busy and needed to prepare a recipe that wouldn't take a lot of thought. This recipe was so simple, it reminded me of my Curry Cabbage recipe that uses a simple inexpensive vegetable but has an amazing taste.

To make the recipe, I saute the onion, garlic, and ginger. I love to use fresh ginger, you wash and freeze your ginger to it lasts longer. Next, I add the dry spices, curry powder, paprika, cumin, and thyme. I love to use Chief brand curry powder or use my own blend of spices, It really makes a big difference which kind of curry powder blend you use.
