Zucchini Sabzi(Dry curry)

Zucchini is my son's favorite vegetable, so I will make sabzi with it.This zucchini palya or sabzi needs very minimal ingredients & yet tastes great. It goes well with both rice and roti (Indian flat bread). Zucchini is used in almost everything from breakfast to dinner. It is a summer squash vegetable which is very easy to work with. The most easy way to work with zucchini is sautéing with some seasoning. Actually I have posted Zucchini thogayal previously.This recipe is a quickest approach to fix your lunch or dinner served with bread. Zucchini is sautéed with onions and tomatoes, then added Indian spices for flavoring.
