Zucchini Koki with Amla Thecha

Phew… This has the whole of Mankind on its knees But I believe if GOD has given us this, there surely is something behind it. Maybe HE wants us to listen to Mother Nature, he tried to warn us in different ways but maybe we didn’t heed HIM. So He again wants us to recall that “The Reins are in My Hands”. Here I am sharing Zucchini Koki with Amla Thecha recipe, best recipe during Covid19. 

Let’s all combat this #Pandemic in a very patient & sensible way by staying safe & keeping everyone safe.
And Hopefully, GOD will be Kind & forgive us soon 🙏
But we have to combat this dreadful disease by being Healthy & keeping our immune system very strong.
We definitely need to include more Nutritive & Super Foods ( definitely not the hyped & expensive ones ) in our diet.
And of course, it has to be delicious !!

So today, I am writing about this fave combination which uses two classic authentic regional dishes made in a little different manner to make it more Healthy.
The famous Sindhi Koki & the most loved Maharashtrian Thecha are two dishes that my family absolutely loves.
So, I just tweaked these a little to add some more nutrition to these.
So, finally made Zucchini Koki recipe with Amla Thecha for the fam & even the kids loved it which is always my measure to see if my healthy recipe worked !!

AmlaAmla or the Indian Gooseberry is known for its immunity booster properties along with loads more
Adding Zucchini to the Koki ups it’s nutritional benefits & so this combination of a meal is an absolute winner.
