Stir Fried Zucchini

Zucchini makes a great side dish that is nutritious and low in carbs and is available all year round. A vegetable that is light on flavour, so you can spice it up as per your taste. I have prepared it with Indian flavours to give it that extra kick. The key to a good stir fry is not to over cook it, so don’t add any extra water and make it quickly, and you’ll get a wonderful tasting dish.
