  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 zucchinis, cut in 1/2 slices and then cut in 1/2

DIRECTIONS
  1. Put the oil in a large frying pan or work and set over medium-high heat. When hot, add the onion and stir until and fry until the onion starts to brown (in a matter of seconds). Put in the zucchini and pattypan and toss over a few times. Now put in the cumin, coriander, turmeric, red pepper flakes, and salt. Stir a few times. If too dry, add a bit of water. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5-10 minutes, until the zucchini and pattypan are almost tender. Turn off heat and set aside. Add the lemon juice. Serve and add fresh cilantro to each bowl.
