Beef with Green Zucchini

Here is another very interesting recipe from my kitchen. This recipe goes well with rice as well as Chapati (Indian baked bread). The cooking time is 45 minutes. This recipe can be used with a number of other seasonal vegetables like turnip, eggplant, potatoes, gourd or green vegetables. I used this recipe quite often and substitute beef with goat meat, chicken or lamb for change. This cooking style is ideal if you like a little bit of sauce (gravy) in your food. 


Here is a breakdown of this quick recipe:
