Read an Excerpt

Indian Zucchini

A few years ago my friend's mother from Pakistan was visiting. When asked if she'd be willing to spend the day in the kitchen teaching some of her favorite recipes, she happily agreed. Grinding cardamom and cumin, chopping garlic and ginger, laughing in the midst of steaming pots and pans, and having cool lemonade, it was a transmission of Indian/Pakistani cooking that left its mark on our hearts. This recipe is a very easy, delicious, and colorful addition to an Indian dinner (or any kind of dinner). Of all the recipes she taught us that day, this recipe stood out and is now one of our standards.

Serves 4
