Fatima came over for linner (lunch/dinner of course!) 🙂 I wanted to make something quick and gave her the option of a veggie stir fry or a Pakistani style zucchini curry. Fatima likes her spices and opted for the zucchini. Turned out pretty good, check it out for yourself if you please!


3 medium zucchini, sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp ginger, minced
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 medium onion, sliced
1 small chilli pepper (cut in half if you like it spicy)
1.5 tsp salt
1.5 tsp chilli powder
1.5 tsp turmeric
1.5 cumin powder
1.5 coriander powder
1.5 garam masala
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
optional: 1/2 – 1 tsp chilli flakes


1. Saute onions over medium heat in skillet
2. Add ginger and garlic when onions START to brown and saute for 1-2 minutes
3. Add all spices, chilli pepper, chilli flakes (if using) and mix
4. Add a LITTLE bit of water if needed so that it doesn’t burn (the zucchini will release a lot of water so make sure not to put too much water or will become soupy)
5. Add zucchini, cover and let cook for about 15-20 minutes (over low-medium heat) or until desired tenderness, stirring every 5 minutes
6. Remove from heat, mix in lemon juice
7. Serve with your favourite type of grain or my rice roti. I like to include grilled tofu for some protein.
