Healthy Zucchini Curry

Zucchini also known as courgette and baby marrow are summer squash, which are herbaceous vines whose roots and seeds are edible even when immature. It is closely related, but not identical, to the marrow. Zucchini is a very versatile vegetable with numerous health benefits.

 Benefits of Zucchini

  • A variety of vitamins, minerals, and beneficial plant compounds can be found in zucchini. Cooked zucchini contains a large amount of vitamin A. It also contains antioxidants, which are found in the skin which is why it's better to keep the skin and not peel zucchini.
  • As well as protecting you against certain cancers, such as prostate cancer, these may benefit your eyes, skin, and heart. 
  • In addition to being high in fibre, zucchini may regulate blood sugar levels and increase insulin sensitivity, thereby reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • Carotenoids, fibre, and potassium in zucchini may lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and other heart disease risk factors.
  • You may be able to lower your risk of age-related eye conditions by eating zucchini because it is rich in manganese, lutein, zeaxanthin, and vitamins A and C.

How can you eat Zucchini?

The zucchini can be eaten raw or cooked in a variety of dishes, such as soups, stews, sandwiches, salads, baked goods, and more. Water and fibre in zucchini, combined with its low-calorie content, may help reduce hunger, which could lead to weight loss over time. This is why Zucchini is perfect to include in your weight loss programme.

Some recipes that I have made with Zucchini are Spanish Warm Courgette Salad and Mucver- Turkish Courgette Fritters

Can I cook zucchini with other vegetables?

You can make zucchini and potato curry, zucchini and peas curry and zucchini and fenugreek curry. 

Types of Zucchini

There are all shapes and sizes of zucchini. You can get yellow, green, stripped, round oval and long. In terms of flavour they are all very similar.
