Yes I prepared Mor Kuzhambu with Zucchini. Today i could not find any vegetables for making a curry or sambhar in my Fridge. I had a Zucchini, which i bought to try soup with it. Finally Morkuzhambu took over the Soup and it did'nt fail to impress us. I got to have a pie of inspiration from Priya, I really wonder, how she plays on ideas with Zucchini. Zucchini Vadai, and Chocolate Bread with Zucchini are must to look for in her blog. Thanks Priya for the Award.
