Blogging Marathon# 49: Week 3/ Day 2 Theme: One Vegetable - 3 Dishes Dish: Gravy Curry -- Zucchini Masala Curry After yesterday's dry curry with zucchini, today I have a gravy curry that goes really well with rotis and even rice. I remember the first time I tried making this gravy curry for rotis couple of years ago. I didn't have any other vegetable in the fridge except for some zucchini and I had to make something to serve along with rotis. So I made this curry with tomato puree and almond butter and it came out creamy and delicious....
