Zucchini in onion tomato gravy
I love Zucchini but never tried to make any dish out of ite. Its one vegetable that was in my list of veggies that I haven't tried. This time, when we went grocery shopping, I bought zucchini and told myself that this time I am going to check this veggie off my "must try veggie" list. Today, when I was thinking about my dinner, this zucchini came to my mind. Thats the story behind my zucchini in onion tomato gravy...
