Z for Zucchini Chorchori

My final recipe for this Mega blogging Marathon! yes we have finished one full month blogging with a theme of Journey through the cuisines. with my journey through the Bengali cuisine I have learn a lot of cooking styles and interesting recipes. But still a few Bengali recipes are there to explore, will try to explore those recipes some other time
                                                                Today final Alphabet is Z this letter is also a a bit difficult to fine ant ingredient or recipes in Bengali cuisine. So I took a chance to use zucchini for this letter to finish my final recipe for this month. I am not a big fan of this vegetable although this vegetable taste like ridge gourd but some how I didn't like this. But this particular recipe with Bengali five spice mix made this gourd much more delicious and that is a good pair with roti.. So My last recipe for this Mega Blogging Marathon with Z is Zucchini Chorchori

I like this vegetable either grilled or stir fried with minimal spices. Panch poran must have enhanced the flavor of zucchini.
