Healthy Zucchini Chickpeas Curry

Healthy Zucchini Chickpeas CurryToday I am sharing another savory recipe with Zucchini and Chickpeas. Healthy Zucchini Chickpeas curry! 

One of my blog visitor had recently asked for a good way to prepare a dish with Zucchini. It is such a pleasure when I get a request like that from my visitors. After all, with so many cooking options, it is easy to overlook some vegetables. Now that the winter is behind us, Zucchini is a prime option for the spring and summer months. I am excited to share this easy, healthy, and comforting Zucchini and Chickpea recipe. Even though I was preparing this dish for the first time, it hardly took 30 minutes to make. So you can imagine how easy it is! Check out my video….  

Zucchini is one of the very low-calorie vegetables. The outer skin is an excellent source of dietary fiber. So, be sure to buy organic zucchini and don’t throw away the skin! Zucchini can be available all around the year, but they are at their best during late spring and summer seasons. Chickpeas make the perfect companion for Zucchini because Zucchini by itself does not offer much for protein. Chickpeas does exactly that! So you have a perfectly balanced diet. I used a variety of spices to make the dish come alive and you should try the same. The dish was an absolute blast with rice and I am pretty sure, it will go well with Rotis too.
