Sautéed zucchini and tomato


This recipe is very simple and didn’t take a long time to cook it, healthy for appetizer or as a side dish. When you have  zucchini and tomatoes at home, you should try this recipe, of course you should also have the dry ingredients that I’ve used here, it’s indian herbs, I love indian cuisine, that’s why I have many stocks of Indian herbs. At least you have ‘Garam Masala’ at home, you could find it at supermarket. It is blend of ground spices, mixture of cumin, black pepper, cardamom, cloves and cinnamon.

I’m trying to find recipes with zucchini, actually I don’t like zucchini as vegetables, I made it as dessert, few weeks ago I’ve made Zucchini almond cake and Zucchini dates muffin. That was really great recipes.
